Volterra summation equations; oscillation; asymptotic behavior
The asymptotic and oscillatory behavior of solutions of Volterra summation equations \[ y_{n}=p_{n} \pm \sum _{s=0}^{n-1}K(n,s)f(s,y_{s}), \ n\in \mathbb{N} \] where $\mathbb{N}=\lbrace 0,1,2,\dots \rbrace $, are studied. Examples are included to illustrate the results.
