#### Abstract

New subclasses of analytic functions in the open unit disc are introduced which are defined using generalised multiplier transformations. Inclusion theorems are investigated for functions to be in the classes. Furthermore, generalised Bernardi-Libera-Livington integral operator is shown to be preserved for these classes.

#### 1. Introduction

Let denote the class of functions normalised by in the open unit disk . Also let , and denote, respectively, the subclasses of consisting of functions which are starlike, convex, and close to convex in . An analytic function is subordinate to an analytic function , written if there exists an analytic function in such that and for and . In particular, if is univalent in , then is equivalent to and . The convolution of two analytic functions and is defined by .

For any real numbers and where , , , Cǎtaş [1] defined the multiplier transformations by the following series: Recently, some properties of functions using the multiplier transformations have been studied in [2–6]. Using the convolution, we extend the multiplier transformation in (1.1) to be a unified operator. The approach used is similar to Noor's [7], only we generalise and extend to include powers and uses the multiplier Ctaş as basis instead of the Ruscheweyh operator.

Set the function and note that, for , is the generalised polylogarithm functions discussed in [8]. A new function is defined in terms of the Hadamard product (or convolution) as follows: Motivated by [9–11] and analogous to (1.1), the following operator is introduced: The operator unifies other previously defined operators. For examples,(i) is the given in [1],(ii) is the given in [12],

also, for any integer ,(iii) given in [13],(iv) given in [14],(v) given in [15].

The following relations are easily derived using the following definition: Let be the class of all analytic and univalent functions in and for which is convex with and for . For , Ma and Minda [16] studied the subclasses , and of the class . These classes are defined using the principle of subordination as follows: Obviously, we have the following relationships for special choices and : Using the generalised multiplier transformations , new classes , and are introduced and defined below It can be shown easily that Janowski [17] introduced class and in particular for , we set In [18], the authors studied the inclusion properties for classes defined using Dziok-Srivastava operator. This paper investigates the similar properties for analytic functions in the classes defined by the generalised multiplier transformations . Furthermore, applications of other families of integral operators are considered involving these classes.

#### 2. Inclusion Properties Involving

In proving our results, the following lemmas are needed.

Lemma 2.1 (see [19]). *Let be convex univalent in , with and . If is analytic in with , then
*

Lemma 2.2 (see [20]). *Let be convex univalent in and be analytic in with . If is analytic in and , then

Theorem 2.3. *For any real numbers and where and .**Let and , then .*

*Proof. *Let , and set where is analytic in with . Rearranging (1.5), we have
Next, differentiating (2.3) and multiplying by gives
Since and applying Lemma 2.1, it follows that . Thus .

Theorem 2.4. *Let , and . Then .*

*Proof. *Let , and from (1.6), we obtain that
Making use of the differentiation on both sides in (2.5) and setting , we get the following:
Since and , using Lemma 2.1, we conclude that .

Corollary 2.5. *Let , and . Then and .*

Theorem 2.6. *Let and . Then and .*

*Proof. *Using (1.10) and Theorem 2.3, we observe that
To prove the second part of Theorem, using the similar manner and applying Theorem 2.4, the result is obtained.

Theorem 2.7. *Let and .** Then and .*

*Proof. *Let . In view of the definition of the class , there is a function such that
Applying Theorem 2.3, then and let .

Let the analytic function with as
Thus, rearranging and differentiating (2.9), we have
Making use (1.5), (2.9), (2.10), and , we obtain that
Since and , then . Using Lemma 2.2, we conclude that and thus . By using similar manner and (1.6), we obtain the second result.

In summary, using subordination technique inclusion properties has been established for certain analytic functions defined via the generalised multiplier transformation.

#### 3. Inclusion Properties Involving

In this section, we determine properties of generalised Bernardi-Libera-Livington integral operator defined by [21–24] and satisfies the following:

Theorem 3.1. *If , then .*

Setting , we have
Lemma 2.1 implies . Hence .

Theorem 3.2. *Let , then .*

*Proof. *By using (1.10) and Theorem 3.1, it follows that

Theorem 3.3. *Let , and , then .*

*Proof. *Let , then there exists function such that . Since therefore from Theorem 3.1, . Then let
Set
By rearranging and differentiating (3.7), we obtain that
Making use (3.2), (3.7), and (3.6), it can be derived that
Hence, applying Lemma 2.2, we conclude that , and it follows that .

For analytic functions in the classes defined by generalised multiplier transformations, the generalised Bernardi-Libera-Livington integral operator has been shown to be preserved in these classes.

#### 4. Conclusion

Results involving functions defined using the generalised multiplier transformation, namely, inclusion properties and the Bernardi-Libera-Livington integral operator were obtained using subordination principles. In [18], similar results were discussed for functions defined using the Dziok-Srivastava operator.
