#### Abstract

We define a class [, , ] of analytic functions by using Janowski’s functions which generalizes a number of classes studied earlier such as the class of strongly close-to-convex functions. Some properties of this class, including arc length, coefficient problems, and a distortion result, are investigated. We also discuss the growth of Hankel determinant problem.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be the class of analytic functions satisfying the condition , in the open unit disc . Let and be analytic in . Then the function is said to be subordinate to , written as if there exists an analytic function in with and such that in . If is univalent in , then is equivalent to and .

A function , analytic in with is said to be in the class , if and only if It is noted that for , the class reduces to the class which was introduced by Janowski [1], and for , , and , we obtain the well-known class of functions with positive real part. Now, we consider the generalized class of Janowski functions which is defined as follows.

A function if and only if where , and . It is clear that and , the well-known class given and studied by Pinchuk [2].

We define the following classes as For ,, and , we obtain the well-known classes of bounded boundary rotation and bounded radius rotation , for details [38]. The classes and have been extensively studied by Noor in [911]. Also and , where and are the classes studied by Polatoğlu in [12].

Throughout in this paper, we assume that unless otherwise mentioned.

Definition 1.1. Let , then if and only if, for , there exists a function such that For is the class of strongly close-to-convex functions of order in the sense of Pommerenke [13]. Also is the class of close-to-convex functions, see [14].

In [15], the th Hankel determinant , for a function is stated by Noonan and Thomas as follows.

Definition 1.2. Let , then the th Hankel determinant of is defined for by

The Hankel determinant plays an important role, for instance, in the study of the singularities by Hadamard, see [16, page 329], Edrei [17] and in the study of power series with integral coefficients by Pólya [18, page 323], Cantor [19], and many others.

In this paper, we will determine the rate of growth of the Hankel determinant for , as . This determinant has been considered by several authors. That is, Noor [20] determined the rate of growth of as for a function belongs to the class . Pommerenke in [21] studied the Hankel determinant for starlike functions. The Hankel determinant problem for other interesting classes of analytic functions was discussed by Noor [2224].

Lemma 1.3. Let . Let the th Hankel determinant of for , be defined by (1.5). Then, writting , we have where with , one defines, for ,

Lemma 1.4. With and any integer,

Lemmas 1.3 and 1.4 are due to Noonan and Thomas [15].

Lemma 1.5. A function if and only if there exist two functions   and such that

Using the definition of class and simple calculations yields the above result.

Lemma 1.6. Let , then with

This result follows easily by using Lemma 1.5 and a result for the class due to Polatoğlu et al. [12]. This result is best possible.

#### 2. Some Properties of the Class

Theorem 2.1. The function if and only if there exist two functions such that

Proof. From (1.4), we have where and . Using (1.10), we obtain with and , which completes the required result.

Theorem 2.2. Let then for , where is the root of with and .

Proof. From (1.4), we have Since, therefore using (1.9), we have Differentiating logarithmically (2.6) with respect to , we obtain Using the well-known results for the classes and we have where and . Let then and for and therefore, there exists a root . This completes the proofs.

Theorem 2.3. Let , then for , and , where is a constant depending upon , andonly.

Proof. With , Since, therefore by using (1.9) with , we have Using the well-known Holder’s inequality, with and such that and ,we can write Also, it is known [13] that, for , Therefore, Therefore, we have Since , for , therefore which is the required result.

Theorem 2.4. Let , then for , and ,

Proof. By Cauchy’s theorem, we have Now putting , we have which is required.

Theorem 2.5. Let , then

Proof. Since therefore Using Lemma 1.5 and the well-known distortion result of class we obtain the required result.

Theorem 2.6. Let , then for , and , where , and is a constant depending on , and only.

Proof. From (1.4), we have where . It follows easily from Alexander type relation that Using (1.9) with , we have Therefore, Let , then for any nonzero complex and , consider as defined by (1.7). Then, and by using (2.27), we have where we have used the result proved in [25]. The well-known Holder’s inequality will give us Using (2.14) in (2.30), we obtain Therefore, we can write Now, using a subordination result for starlike functions, we have where is a constant depending on only and . Applying Lemma 1.4 and putting , we have for , where is a constant depending on , and only. We now estimate the rate of growth of . For and For , we use similar argument due to Noonan and Thomas [15] together with Lemma 1.3 to have and depends only on , and .
