The existence of nonoscillatory solutions of the higher-order nonlinear differential equation [π‘Ÿ(𝑑)(π‘₯(𝑑)+𝑃(𝑑)π‘₯(π‘‘βˆ’πœ))(π‘›βˆ’1)]ξ…ž+βˆ‘π‘šπ‘–=1𝑄𝑖(𝑑)𝑓𝑖(π‘₯(π‘‘βˆ’πœŽπ‘–))=0,𝑑β‰₯𝑑0, where π‘šβ‰₯1,𝑛β‰₯2 are integers, 𝜏>0,πœŽπ‘–β‰₯0,π‘Ÿ,𝑃,π‘„π‘–βˆˆπΆ([𝑑0,∞),𝑅),π‘“π‘–βˆˆπΆ(𝑅,𝑅)(𝑖=1,2,…,π‘š), is studied. Some new sufficient conditions for the existence of a nonoscillatory solution of above equation are obtained for general 𝑄𝑖(𝑑)(𝑖=1,2,…,π‘š) which means that we allow oscillatory 𝑄𝑖(𝑑)(𝑖=1,2,…,π‘š). In particular, our results improve essentially and extend some known results in the recent references.
