Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, we want to initiate a study of regular variation on time scales by introducing this concept in such a way that it unifies and extends well studied continuous and discrete cases. Some basic properties of regularly varying functions on time scales will be established as well. Second, we give conditions under which certain solutions of linear second order dynamic equations are regularly varying. Open problems and possible directions for a future research are discussed, too.

Abstract:
Some new oscillation criteria for secondorder linear delay dynamic equation on a time scale T are established. Our results improve the recent results for delay dynamic equations and in the special case when T=R, the results include the oscillation results established by Hille [1948, Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 64 (1948), 234252] and Erbe [Canad. Math. Bull. 16 (1973), 4956.] for differential equations. When T=Z the results include and improve some oscillation criteria for difference equations. When T=hZ, h>0, T=q^{N} and T=N^{2}, i.e., for generalized second order delay difference equations our results are essentially new and can be applied on different types of time scales. An example is considered to illustrate the main results.

Abstract:
Using monotonic properties of nonoscillatory solutions, we obtain new oscillatory criteria for the secondorder noncanonical difference equation with retarded argument
Our oscillation results improve and extend the earlier ones. Examples illustrating the results are provided.
