Abstract: Comparison theorems for conjugate points of fourth order selfadjoint differential equations have been established by J. Barrett. In the present paper a more direct method of proof is used to generalize Barrett’s theorem to general selfadjoint equations of even order while replacing certain pointwise conditions on the coefficients by weaker integral conditions. Further generalizations are indicated to nonlinear equations, to differential inequalities, and to certain nonselfadjoint equations.
