#### 2. Univalence Conditions for the Operator

We first prove the following theorem.

Theorem 9. Let , , for all and with . If then the integral operator defined by (3) is in the class .

Proof. Define the regular function by Then it is easy to see that and . Differentiating both sides of (26) logarithmically, we obtain Thus, we have Since , for all , from (28), (18), (19), and (20), we obtain Multiplying both sides of (29) by , we get for all .
Let us denote , , , and . It is easy to prove that From (31), (30), and the hypotheses (24), we have for all . Applying Lemma 2 for the function , we prove that .

Letting , , , , and in Theorem 9, we obtain the following corollary.

Corollary 10. Let , , , and all with . If and then the integral operator defined by is in the class .

If we set in Corollary 10, we have the following.

Corollary 11. Let , and all with . If then the integral operator defined by (34) is in the class .

Next, we prove the following theorem.

Theorem 12. Let for all and each satisfies condition (15) with and and then, for any complex number with , the integral operator defined by (4) is in the class .

Proof. Suppose that for all . Thus we have where for all . Differentiating both sides of (37) logarithmically, we obtain Define the regular function as in (25). Thus from (27) we have and so From Lemma 8, it follows that Multiplying both sides of (41) by , from Lemma 5 with , we get Suppose that . Define a function by Then is an increasing function and consequently, for ; , we obtain We thus find from (42) and (44) that Using the hypotheses (36) for , we readily get Now if , we define a function by We observe that the function is decreasing and consequently, for , we have for all . It follows from (40) and (42) that Using once again the hypotheses (36) when , we easily get Finally by applying Lemma 2, we conclude that the integral operator defined by (4) is in the class .

Letting , , , , and in Theorem 12, we obtain the following corollary.

Corollary 13. Let , and satisfies condition (15). If then, for any complex number with , the integral operator defined by (4) is in the class .

Using Lemma 3, we derive the following theorem.

Theorem 14. Let for all , , and each satisfies condition (15). If then, for any complex number with , the integral operator defined by (4) is in the class .

Proof. From (40), we have Suppose that . Define a function by Then is an increasing function and consequently for ; , we obtain We thus find from (53) that Using the hypotheses (52) for , we readily get Now if , we define a function by We observe that the function is decreasing and consequently for ; , and using once again the hypotheses (36) when , we easily get Finally, by applying Lemma 3, we conclude that .
