Abstract: Consider the second-order vector differential system (1) and matrix differential system (2) , where is an -dimensional vector function and and are continuous matrix functions. In this article, we establish the concept that systems (1) and (2) are oscillatory with respect to partial variables. Some sufficient conditions are obtained; several examples are given to illustrate the results.
