In this paper, we define a new operator on the class of meromorphic functions and define a subclass using Hilbert space operator. Coefficient estimate, distortion bounds, extreme points, radii of starlikeness, and convexity are obtained.
Let denote the class of meromorphic functions defined on . For given by (1) and given by the Hadamard product (or convolution)  of and is defined by Many subclasses of meromorphic functions have been defined and studied in the past. In particular, the subclasses , and , and and , are considered by researchers. Let be a complex Hilbert space and denote the algebra of all bounded linear operators on . For a complex-valued function analytic in a domain of the complex plane containing the spectrum of the bounded linear operator , let denote the operator on defined by the Riesz-Dunford integral  where is the identity operator on and is a positively oriented simple closed rectifiable closed contour containing the spectrum in the interior domain . The operator can also be defined by the following series: which converges in the norm topology. In this paper, we introduce a subclass of defined using Hilbert space operator and prove a necessary and sufficient condition for the function to belong to this class, the distortion theorem, radius of starlikeness, and convexity. In , Atshan and Buti had defined an operator acting on analytic functions in terms of a definite integral. We modify their operator for meromorphic functions as follows.
Lemma 1. For given by (1), , and , if the operator is defined by then where .

Theorem 3. A meromorphic function given by (1) is in the class if and only if The result is sharp for .
Corollary 4. If of the form (1) is in , then The result is sharp for the function .

Theorem 9. Let . Then, is meromorphically convex of order in , where
Theorem 10. The class is closed under convex combination.

5. Hadamard Product
Theorem 11. The Hadamard product of two functions and in belongs to the class , where .
Proof. It suffices to prove that
By Cauchy-Schwartz inequality,
We have to find the largest such that
It is enough to find the largest such that
It follows from (38) that
Clearly is an increasing function of . Letting , we prove the assertion.
