Abstract.In this paper we consider a second order functional differential equation
containing a function of sublinear rate and depending on the maximum of the unknown and defined on some interval taken before coming the present time . We call this equation with ``maxima". Criteria for existence of nonoscillating solutions are established under requirement that , , , should be continuous on some sets, and has sublinear rate. These differential equations could be seen in lots of mathematical models in theoretical physics, optimal control, chemistry, mechanics of materials, biology, ecology, etc.
