Abstract

We prove that the function 𝑓𝛼,𝛽(π‘₯)=Γ𝛽(π‘₯+𝛼)/π‘₯𝛼Γ(𝛽π‘₯) is strictly logarithmically completely monotonic on (0,∞) if √(𝛼,𝛽)∈{(𝛼,𝛽)∢1/𝛼≀𝛽≀1,𝛼≠1}βˆͺ{(𝛼,𝛽)∢0<𝛽≀1,πœ‘1(𝛼,𝛽)β‰₯0,πœ‘2(𝛼,𝛽)β‰₯0} and [𝑓𝛼,𝛽(π‘₯)]βˆ’1 is strictly logarithmically completely monotonic on (0,∞) if √(𝛼,𝛽)∈{(𝛼,𝛽)∢0<𝛼≀1/2,0<𝛽≀1}βˆͺ{(𝛼,𝛽)∢1≀𝛽≀1/βˆšπ›Όβ‰€2,𝛼≠1}βˆͺ{(𝛼,𝛽)∢1/2≀𝛼<1,𝛽β‰₯1/(1βˆ’π›Ό)}, where πœ‘1(𝛼,𝛽)=(𝛼2+π›Όβˆ’1)𝛽2+(2𝛼2βˆ’3𝛼+1)π›½βˆ’π›Ό and πœ‘2(𝛼,𝛽)=(π›Όβˆ’1)𝛽2+(2𝛼2βˆ’5𝛼+2)π›½βˆ’1.
