Title

The analogue of the iterated logarithm for quantum difference equations

Keywords and Phrases

Kneser's theorem; Time scale chain rule

Abstract

"In this thesis, we consider oscillation and nonoscillation of q-difference equations, i.e., equations that arise while studying q-calculus. In particular, we prove an extension of Kneser's theorem on q-calculus to cases in which no conclusion can be drawn by applying Kneser's theorem. In order to accomplish this, we establish a change of variables which yields, when applied iteratively, a sequence of comparison functions. We use these comparison functions to establish our main result. Finally, we consider an analogue result for time scales which are unbounded from above"--Abstract, leaf iii.
