In this paper, we study the oscillatory behavior of the fractionaldifference equations of the following form (see in paper) denotes the Riemann-Liouville difference operator and η>0 is a quotient of odd positive integers. We establish some oscillation criteria forthe equation by using Riccati transformation technique and some inequalities. Anexample is shown to illustrate our main results.
