Abstract

In this paper, we study the oscillation of solutions to a non-linear fractional differential equation with damping term. The fractional derivative is defined in the sense of the modified Riemann-Liouville derivative. By using a variable transformation, a generalized Riccati transformation, inequalities, and integration average technique we establish new oscillation criteria for the fractional differential equation. Several illustrative examples are also given.
