Summation Formulas Obtained by Means of the Generalized Chain Rule for Fractional Derivatives
Thu, 28 Aug 2014 11:49:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2014/820951/
In 1970, several interesting new summation formulas were obtained by using a generalized chain rule for fractional derivatives. The main object of
this paper is to obtain a presumably new general formula. Many special cases involving special functions of mathematical physics such as the generalized hypergeometric functions, the Appell function, and the Lauricella functions of several variables are given.

Coefficients of Meromorphic BiBazilevic Functions
Sun, 09 Mar 2014 08:03:26 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2014/263917/
A function is said to be biBazilevic in a given domain if both the function and its inverse map are Bazilevic there. Applying the Faber polynomial expansions to the meromorphic Bazilevic functions, we obtain the general coefficient bounds for biBazilevic functions. We also demonstrate the unpredictability of the behavior of early coefficients of biBazilevic functions.

The Symmetric Versions of Rouché’s Theorem via Calculus
Tue, 04 Feb 2014 14:16:01 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2014/260953/
Let be a pair of holomorphic functions. In this expositional paper we apply the calculus to prove the symmetric version “ on ” as well as the homotopic version of Rouché's theorem for arbitrary planar compacta . Using Eilenberg's representation theorem we also give a converse to the homotopic version. Then we derive two analogs of Rouché's theorem for continuousholomorphic pairs (a symmetric and a nonsymmetric one). One of the rarely presented properties of the nonsymmetric version is that in the fundamental boundary hypothesis, , equality is allowed.

Mon, 20 Jan 2014 17:23:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2014/216398/
We will prove the assertions which give necessary and sufficient conditions for a normal meromorphic function on the open unit disk to have an angular limit. The results obtained show that the conditions from the classical Lindelöf theorem, as well as the theorems of Lehto and Virtanen and Bagemihl and Seidel, concerning angular limit values of meromorphic functions, can be weakened.

The Method of FischerRiesz Equations for Elliptic Boundary Value Problems
Tue, 19 Feb 2013 11:18:13 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2013/486934/
We develop the method of FischerRiesz equations for general boundary value problems elliptic in the sense of DouglisNirenberg. To this end we reduce them to a boundary problem for a (possibly overdetermined) firstorder system whose classical symbol has a left inverse. For such a problem there is a uniquely determined boundary value problem which is adjoint to the given one with respect to the Green formula. On using a wellelaborated theory of approximation by solutions of the adjoint problem, we find the Cauchy data of solutions of our problem.
