#### Abstract

The main object of the present paper is to discuss some extensions of certain integral operators and to obtain their order of convexity. Several other closely related results are also considered.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be the class of analytic functions defined in the open unit disk of the complex plane .

We denote by the subclass of consisting of all univalent functions in . A function is *starlike function of order * if it satisfies
for some . We denote by the subclass of consisting of the functions which are starlike of order in . For , we obtain the class of starlike functions, denoted by .

A function is *convex of order * if it satisfies
for some (). We denote by the subclass of consisting of the functions which are convex of order in . For , we obtain the class of convex functions, denoted by .

A function is in the class if

Frasin and Jahangiri introduced in [1] the family consisting of functions satisfying the condition For we have , and for we have .

In this paper, we will obtain the order of convexity of the following general integral operators: where the functions are in for all .

In order to prove our main results, we recall the following lemma.

Lemma 1.1 (see [2, General Schwarz Lemma]). * Let the function be regular in the disk , with for fixed . If has one zero with multiplicity order bigger than for , then
**
The equality can hold only if
**
