#### Abstract

In this present investigation, we first give a survey of the work done so far in this area of Hankel determinant for univalent functions. Then the upper bounds of the second Hankel determinant for functions belonging to the subclasses , , , and of analytic functions are studied. Some of the results, presented in this paper, would extend the corresponding results of earlier authors.

#### 1. Introduction

Let denote the class of functions of the form which are analytic in the unit disc , and let denote the subclass of that is univalent in . Suppose that and are analytic functions in ; we say that is subordinate to , written , if there exists a Schwarz function , which is analytic in with and for all , such that , . In particular, if is univalent in , then the subordination is equivalent to and .

Let be the family of all functions analytic in for which and for .

It is well known that the following correspondence between the class and the class of Schwarz functions exists [1]:

Let denote the starlike subclass of . It is well known that if and only if Let denote the class of all functions that are convex. Further, is convex if and only if is starlike. Also we know that .

In 1959, Sakaguchi [2] introduced the class of functions starlike with respect to symmetric points, consisting of functions satisfying

In 1977, Das and Singh [3] introduced the class of functions convex with respect to symmetric points, which consists of functions satisfying

It is evident that if and only if .

In 2007, Wang and Jiang [4] introduced the following subclass.

*Definition 1 (see [4]). *Suppose that and . Let denote the class of functions in satisfying the following inequality:

From [4], one knows that the above condition is equivalent to
which implies that

If , then the class reduces to the class . In the similar way, one can easily get the following definitions.

*Definition 2. *Suppose that and . Let denote the class of functions in satisfying the following inequality:

It is evident that the above condition is equivalent to
which implies that

If and , then the class reduces to the class .

*Definition 3. *Suppose that and . Let denote the class of functions in satisfying the following inequality:

From [5], one knows that the above condition is equivalent to

The function class was introduced and investigated by Sudharsan et al. [6]. If and , then the class reduces to the class .

*Definition 4. *Suppose that and . Let denote the class of functions in satisfying the following inequality:

It is evident that the above condition is equivalent to

If and , then the class reduces to the class .

In 1966, Pommerenke [7] stated the th Hankel determinant for and as
This Hankel determinant is useful and has also been considered by several authors. The growth rate of Hankel determinant as was investigated, respectively, when is a member of certain subclass of analytic functions, such as the class of* p*-valent functions [7, 8], the class of starlike functions [7], the class of univalent functions [9], the class of close-to-convex functions [10], the class of strong close-to-convex functions [11], a new class [12], and a new class [13]. Similar to the above discussions, we can also refer to [14, 15]. Ehrenborg [16] studied the Hankel determinant of exponential polynomials. The Hankel transform of an integer sequence was defined and some of its properties were discussed by Layman [17]. Pommerenke [9] proved that the Hankel determinants of univalent function satisfy
Later, was also proved by Hayman [18]. One can easily observe that the Fekete and Szegö functional is . For results related to the functional, see [19, 20]. Fekete and Szegö further generalized the estimate , where is real and . For results related to the functional, see [21, 22]. In 2010, Hayami and Owa [21, 22] also generalized the estimate for analytic function. Later, in 2012, Krishna and Ramreddy [23] also generalized the estimate for* p*-valent analytic function; see also [24, 25].

For our discussion in this paper, we consider the second Hankel determinant in the case of and , namely,

Janteng et al. [26] have considered the functional and found a sharp bound, the subclass of denoted by , defined as . In their work, they have shown that if , then . These authors [27, 28] also studied the second Hankel determinant and sharp bound for the classes of starlike and convex functions, close-to-starlike and close-to-convex functions with respect to symmetric points denoted by , , , and and have shown that , , , and , respectively.

Singh [29] established the second Hankel determinant and sharp bound for the classes of close-to-starlike and close-to-convex functions with respect to conjugate and symmetric conjugate points denoted by , , , and and has shown that , , , and , respectively.

Mishra and Gochhayat [30] obtained the sharp bound to for the functions in the class denoted by , and defined as , using the fractional differential operator denoted by and defined by Owa and Srivastava [31]. These authors have shown that if , then .

Mohammed and Darus [32] have obtained a sharp upper bound to for the functions in the class denoted by , and defined as . These authors have proved that if , then .

Similar to the above discussions in a new subclass of analytic function with different operators, we can also refer to [33, 34]. Singh [35] also obtained a sharp upper bound for the functional for the function , where and showed that if , then .

Mehrok and Singh [36] have obtained a sharp upper bound to for the function in the classes denoted by and and defined as, respectively, In their work, they proved that if , then and if , then .

Shanmugam et al. [37] established the sharp upper bound of the second Hankel determinant for the classes of and , defined as, respectively, These authors proved that if , then and if , then

Krishna and Ramreddy [38] obtained a sharp upper bound to the nonlinear functional for a new subclass of analytic functions , , defined by These authors proved that if , then .

Similar to the above discussions defined as different classes of analytic functions, we can also refer to [39–49]. Raza and Malik [50] studied the third Hankel determinant of analytic functions related with lemniscate of Bernoulli; see also [51].

Motivated by the above-mentioned results obtained by different authors in this direction, in this present investigation, we determine the upper bounds of the second Hankel determinant for functions belonging to these classes , , , and .
