ABSTRACT Applications of differential equations with retarded argument can be encountered in the theory of automatic control, in the theory of self-oscillatory systems, in the study of problems connected with combustion in rocket engines, in a number of problems in economics, biophysics. The problems in this areas can be solved reducing differential equations with retarded argument. In this work an important inequality for second order differential equation with retarded argument is obtained.
