#### Abstract

We consider some integral operators defined by analytic functions in the open unit disk and derive new univalence criteria for these operators, using Kudriasov condition for a function to be univalent.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be the class of functions which are analytic in the open unit disk of the form normalized by .

We denote by the subclass of consisting of functions , which are univalent in .

We consider the integral operators for , being complex numbers, , , and the functions , .

Some univalence criteria for these integral operators were studied in [1]. Applying univalence conditions given by Kudriasov [2] and Pascu [3], we obtain new Kudriasov type univalence criteria for these two integral operators.

#### 2. Preliminaries

Various generalizations of Becker’s univalence criteria for analytic functions given in [4] were obtained by many authors. For example, the result obtained by Pascu in [3] is also known as an improvement of Becker’s univalence criteria. This result or other similar generalizations of Becker’s univalence criteria have been used further to derive new univalence criteria for integral operators (see, e.g., some relatively recent works as [1, 5, 6]). In this paper we use Pascu improvement of Becker’s univalence criteria and also another univalence condition for a function to be univalent, given by Kudriasov in [2]. There are also some papers devoted to univalence criteria that use some Kudriasov type conditions (see, e.g., the work [1] containing a chapter dedicated to Kudriasov type univalence conditions and other papers as, e.g., [7–10]).

The following univalence criteria are given by Kudriasov for a regular function.

Lemma 1 (see [2]). *Let be a regular function in , . If
**
for all , where , the function is univalent in .*

*Remark 2. *The constant is a solution of the equation . An approximation of this solution in MATLAB environment is 3.03902118847875. However, we call this constant in our further results like Kudriasov gave it, approximately equal to 3.05.

The improvement of Becker’s univalence condition is given by Pascu for integral operators as follows.

Lemma 3 (see [3]). *Let be a complex number, , and the function . If
**
for all , then for every complex number , , the function
**
is regular and univalent in .*

#### 3. Main Results

Theorem 4. *Let , be complex numbers, , , the functions , , , , and the positive real number .**If
**

*Proof. *Let us consider the function

The function is regular in and . We have
for all .

From (9), we obtain further

By (6) and Lemma 1, we have , , and hence we obtain

From (10) and (11), we get
for all .

Now we consider the following cases.

(1) . The function , , , , is increasing and we obtain

From (12) and (13), we obtain
for all .

Using the hypothesis condition (7), from (14), we have
for all .

(2) . We notice that the function
is decreasing function, and we obtain

Using the last inequality in (12), we have
for all .

Now using the hypothesis condition (7), from (18), we get
for all .

Hence, based on the conditions obtained in (15) and in (19), applying Lemma 3, we have that .

Theorem 5. *Let , be complex numbers, , , the functions , , , , and the positive real number, .**If
**
then , , and for every complex number , , the integral operator is in the class .*

*Proof. *By (20) and Lemma 1, we obtain that , .

We consider the function
The function is regular in and .

We have
for all .

Further we obtain

From (24) and from the Kudriasov condition within the hypothesis, (20), we have
for all .

Let us consider the function , , , . We have

By (25), (26), and (21) we obtain
for all .

Now from (27) and Lemma 3, it results that .
