Oscillation criteria are obtained for a class of vector delay differential equation of the form
t≥0, u ε C2 ([0, ∞),R n), where F 1 and F 2 are continuous nonnegative valued functionals in [0, ∞)×R n×R n, and g is a continuous real valued function with g(t)≤t, g(t)→∞ as t→ ∞. A solution u: [0, ∞)→R n is called h-oscillatory in [0, ∞) whenever the scalar product [u(t), h] (│h│=1) has zeros in [a, ∞) with a arbitrary large. The method involves oscillatory behaviour of solutions of a nonlinear scalar delay differential inequality satisfied by h-nonoscillatory solutions of the above equation.
