Consider the first-order linear differential equation with several retarded argumentswhere the functions pi,τi∈C([t0,∞),R+) for every i=1,2,…,m, τi(t)≤t for t≥t0 and limt→∞τi(t)=∞. A survey on the oscillation of all solutions to this equation is presented in the case of several non-monotone arguments and especially when well-known oscillation conditions are not satisfied. Examples illustrating the results are given.MSC:34K11, 34K06.
