Abstract : In the theory of second order ordinary linear homogeneous differential equations of the type (y double prime) + (lambda)p(x)y = 0 having variable coefficient p, much work has been done involving distance between zeros of solutions and bounds for eigenvalues in terms of p relative to certain boundary conditions. The problem studied here is to establish analogs of this theory for nonlinear differential equations of the type (y double prime) + p(x)(y sup (2n+1)) = 0 where n is a positive integer. (Author)
