#### Abstract

By using a linear operator, we obtain some new results for a normalized analytic function *f* defined by means of the Hadamard product of Hurwitz zeta function. A class related to this function will be introduced and the properties will be discussed.

#### 1. Introduction

A meromorphic function is a single-valued function, that is, analytic in all but possibly a discrete subset of its domain, and at those singularities it must go to infinity like a polynomial (i.e., these exceptional points must be poles and not essential singularities). A simpler definition states that a meromorphic function is a function of the form where and are entire functions with (see [1, page 64]). A meromorphic function therefore may only have finite-order, isolated poles and zeros and no essential singularities in its domain. A meromorphic function with an infinite number of poles is exemplified by on the punctured disk .

An equivalent definition of a meromorphic function is a complex analytic map to the Riemann sphere. For example, the Gamma function is meromorphic in the whole complex plane; see [1, 2].

In the present paper, we will derive some properties of univalent functions defined by means of the Hadamard product of Hurwitz Zeta function; a class related to this function will be introduced and the properties of the liner operator will be discussed.

#### 2. Preliminaries

Let denote the class of meromorphic functions normalized by which are analytic in the punctured unit disk . For , we denote by and the subclasses of consisting of all meromorphic functions which are, respectively, starlike of order and convex of order in .

For functions defined by we denote the Hadamard product (or convolution) of and by

Let us define the function by for , and , where is the Pochhammer symbol. We note that where is the well-known Gaussian hypergeometric function.

We recall here a general Hurwitz-Lerch-Zeta function, which is defined in [3, 4] by the following series: (, ; when ; when ).

Important special cases of the function include, for example, the Riemann zeta function , the Hurwitz zeta function , the Lerch zeta function , , and the polylogarithm . Recent results on can be found in the expositions [5, 6]. By making use of the following normalized function we define Corresponding to the functions and using the Hadamard product for , we define a new linear operator on by the following series: The meromorphic functions with the generalized hypergeometric functions were considered recently by many others; see, for example, [7–12].

It follows from (10) that
