For the scalar delay differential equation with a distributed delay

x˙(t)+tx(s)dsR(t,s)=f(t)(t>to)\dot{x} (t) + \int ^t_{– \infty} x(s)d_sR(t,s) = f(t) (t > t_o)

a connection between the properties
positiveness of the fundamental function
existence of a non-negative solution for a certain nonlinear integral inequality
is established. This enables to obtain comparison theorems and explicit non-oscillation and oscillation conditions being generalizations of some known results for delay equations and integro-differential equations and leads to oscillation results for equations with infinite number of delays.
