Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to study the oscillation criteria for a class of third-order neutral differential equations with distributed deviating arguments
[b(t)((a(t)(z(t))α1))α2] + ∫d c q(t,ξ)ƒ(x(α(t,ξ)))dξ = 0, tt0
where z(t) = x(t) + ∫n m p(t, ξ)x(τ (t, ξ)) and αi are ratios of positive odd integers, i=1, 2. By using a generalized Riccati transformation and an integral averaging technique, we establish some new theorems, which ensure that all solutions of this equation oscillate or converge to zero. Some examples are given to illustrate our main results.

Keywords: third-order neutral differential equations; distributed deviating arguments; oscillation; asymptotic behaviour; generalised Riccati transformation.
