Abstract: Consider the delay differential equation , where is odd and satisfies for . When and exist, there is at least one Kaplan-Yorke periodic solution with period if . When this condition is not satisfied, we present several sufficient conditions on the existence/nonexistence of such periodic solutions. It is worthy of mention that some results are on the existence of at least two Kaplan-Yorke periodic solutions with period and in some cases we do not require the limits and/or to exist. Hence our results not only greatly improve but also complement existing ones. Moreover, some of the theoretical results are illustrated with examples.
