Abstract

Nonlinear hyperbolic type partial difference equations with a forcing term are studied in this paper. By means of two averaging techniques, the problems of oscillation of characteristic initial value problem and of initial boundary value problem are reduced to that of forced and/ or unforced recurrence relations in one variable. A variety of oscillation criteria is given for these relations which in turn yield oscillation criteria for the partial difference equations.
