Abstract : The report describes the oscillatory behavior of solutions of the equation (1) x double prime + a(t)x=0, where a(t) is locally integrable on the interval from zero to, but not including, infinity. The main result is an extension of a nonoscillation theorem due to Hartman, the contrapositive of which is a useful criterion for equation (1) to be oscillatory. (Author)
