Abstract

Equation with general nonhomogeneous -Laplacian, including classical and singular -Laplacian, is investigated. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of nonoscillatory solutions satisfying certain asymptotic boundary conditions are given and discrepancies between the general and classical are illustrated as well.
