Abstract: Consider the differential equation with deviating arguments (1)

$\displaystyle \dot y(t) + p[y(t - {\sigma _1}) - y(t - {\sigma _2})] = 0$

where $ p,{\sigma _1}$ and $ {\sigma _2}$ are real numbers. We prove that every unbounded solution of (1) oscillates if and only if the characteristic equation (2)

$\displaystyle \lambda + p({e^{ - \lambda {\sigma _1}}} - {e^{ - \lambda {\sigma _2}}}) = 0$

has no positive roots and 0 is a simple root of (2).
