Difference equations manifest themselves as mathematical models describing real life situations in probability theory, queuing problems, statistical problems, stochastic time series, combinatorial analysis, number theory, geometry, electrical networks, quanta in radiation, genetics in biology, economics, psychology, sociology, etc., unfortunately, these are only considered as the discrete analogs of differential equations. It is an indisputable fact that difference equations appeared much earlier than differential equations and were instrumental in paving the way for the development of the latter. It is only recently that difference equations have started receiving the attention they deserve. Perhaps this is largely due to the advent of computers, where differential equations are solved by using their approximate difference equation formulations. The theory of difference equations has grown at an accelerated pace in the past decade. It now occupies a central position in applicable analysis and will no doubt continue to play an important role in mathematics as a whole.
In this study we compared to second and higher order difference equations, the study of third and fourth order difference equations has received less attention. Some fourth order difference equations can be found in
[1] to [10 ]. However, it seems there is very very less known regarding the oscillation of equation (1.1).It is a extended version of [11]. Our aim of in this paper is to present some oscillation criteria for equation (1.1). 
Main results: Theorem 2.1 :
If is a oscillatory solution of equation (1.1) for
.From lemma (2.1) it follows that
,
such that .
Proof :
define,
for .we
Let be a non oscillatory solution of equation (1.1) without loss of generality we may assume that
,for .
From (1.1) we have
.We have to prove that

get
(2.3)
Letting then
there is an integer such that Summing the last inequality from we get
Since from the inequality we have From equation (2.3)
Letting then thus there is
an integer such that for
which implies that
. Summing this inequality from
we get .
Let then , this is contradiction.
Therefore .
Theorem 2.2 :
Assume that the difference equation (1.1) holds the condition (H1) to (H4) and there exist a positive sequence such that
Consider,
Therefore
For
(2.4)
Then every solution of equation (1.1) is oscillatory.
Proof :
Let be a non oscillatory solution of equation (1.1) without loss of generality, we may assume that
(2.5)
If
Then we have
where
Summing this inequality from to . We get
(2.7)
Then every solution of equation(1.1) is oscillatory
Proof :
Let be a non oscillatory solution of equation (1.1),which may assume to be eventually positive.
From equation (2.2) &(2.3) we define the sequence as follows
(2.6)
This is contradiction. Hence it is complete the proof.
Corollary : Assume that the difference equation (1.1) holds the condition of theorem 2.2 except the condition
2.1 is replaced by
Then every solution of(1.1) is Oscillatory.
Here we apply the double sequence Sn,m in the difference equation (1.1)
Definition:
Let Sn,m be a double sequence of real numbers.
if for every ,there exist such that if n,m then
if for every ,there exist such that if n,m then
Theorem 2.3 :
.
Assume that (H1) to (H4) holds and let {bn} be a positive sequence and assume that there exist a double sequence such that
Sn,m >0 for n>m>0
=0
This yields after summing by parts
= 0 for
Where
>
>
Which clearly contradicts (2.7).
Remarks :
By choosing the sequence in appropriate manners, we can derive several oscillation criteria for(1.1).
Let us consider the double sequence defined by
Corollary: Assume that all the assumptions of Theorem 2.3 hold except that condition (2.7) is replaced by
Then every solution of equation (1.1) is oscillatory.
Example : 1
Consider the difference equation
Satisfies all the condition of Theorem 2.2 &2.3 for Sn,m=n+m & . Hence all the solution of equation (1.1) are oscillatory.
