Abstract: This paper is concerned with the oscillatory behavior of the fourth-order nonlinear differential equation
where $\alpha>0$, $\beta>0$ are constants and $p,q:[a,\infty)\to(0,\infty)$ are continuous functions satisfying conditions
\int_a^{\infty}\left( \frac{t}{p(t)}\right)^{\frac{1}{\alpha}}\,dt<\infty,
\int_a^{\infty}\frac{t}{\left(p(t)\right)^{\frac{1}{\alpha}}}\,dt<\infty .
We will establish necessary and sufficient condition for oscillation of all solutions of the sub-half-linear equation (E) (for $\beta<\alpha$) as well as of the super-half-linear equation (E) (for $\beta>\alpha$).
