Two new subclasses and of multivalent analytic functions are introduced. Distortion inequalities and inclusion relation for and are obtained. Some results of the partial sums of functions in these classes are also given.
Throughout this paper, we assume that Let denote the class of functions of the form which are analytic in the unit disk .
For functions and analytic in , we say that is subordinate to in and write , if there exists a Schwarz function in such that
Let Then the Hadamard product (or convolution) of and is defined by The following lemma will be required in our investigation.
Lemma 1. Let defined by (2) satisfy Then where
Proof. For defined by (2), the function in (8) can be expressed as
In view of (1) and (9), we see that
Let inequality (6) hold. Then from (10) and (12) we deduce that Hence, by the maximum modulus theorem, we arrive at (7).
We now consider the following two subclasses of .
Definition 3. A function defined by (2) is said to be in the class if and only if it satisfies
It is obvious from Definitions 2 and 3 that
If we write then it is easy to verify that Thus we obtain the following inclusion relations: Therefore, by Lemma 1, we see that each function in the classes and is starlike with respect to -symmetric points. Analytic functions which are starlike with respect to symmetric points and related functions have been extensively investigated in [1–6]. Recently, several authors have obtained many important properties and characteristics of multivalent analytic functions (see, e.g., [7–11]).
The main object of this paper is to present some distortion inequalities of functions in the classes and which we have introduced here. In particular some results of inclusion relation and convolution of functions in these classes are also given. Further we derive several interesting results of the partial sums of functions in these classes.
2. Main Results
Theorem 4. Let and suppose that either(a) and , or(b) and .
(i) If , then, for , The bounds in (19) are best possible for the function defined by (ii) If , then, for , The bounds in (21) are best possible for the function defined by
Proof. Let . For and , we have , and so For and , we have and If either (a) or (b) is satisfied, then (i) If then it follows from (23) to (25) that Hence we have for . (ii) If then (23) to (25) yield This leads to (21). The proof of the theorem is complete.
Proof. Note that implies that (i) For , it follows from (23), (24), and (38) that From this we can get (33). (ii) For , from (23), (24), and (38) we deduce that Hence we have (36). The proof of the theorem is complete.
Proof. Let . For and , we have , , and For and , we have , and so (i) If then it follows from (45) and (46) that Hence we have for .(ii) If then (45) and (46) yield This leads to (43). Thus we complete the proof.
Next, we generalize the inclusion relation which is mentioned in (18).
Theorem 7. If , then where
Proof. Since and , we see that
Let . In order to prove that , we need only to find the smallest such that for all , that is, that
For and , (56) is equivalent to Noting (1), a simple calculation shows that for all real and , and so the function is decreasing in . Therefore For and , (56) becomes
Consequently, by taking it follows from (55) to (60) that . The proof is complete.
Theorem 9. Let . Then where
Proof. For , from Lemma 1 we have (7), which is equivalent to
If we put
then, for ,
and, for ,
Now, making use of (65) to (69), we arrive at for , and . This gives the desired result (62). The proof of the theorem is complete.
Corollary 10. Let . Then where is the same as in Theorem 9.
Proof. Since if and only if it follows from Theorem 9 that Thus we complete the proof.
Finally, we derive certain results of the partial sums of functions in the classes and .
Proof. If either (a) or (b) is satisfied, then, for ,
Let . Then it follows from (77) that
If we put for and , then and we deduce from (78) that This implies that for , and so (75) holds true for .
Similarly, by setting it follows from (78) that Hence we have (76) for .
For , replacing (78) by and proceeding as the above, we see that (75) and (76) are also true.
Furthermore, taking the function defined by we have , Thus the proof of Theorem 11 is completed.
