#### Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to extend the work concerning the measures of growth of an entire function solution of the generalized axially symmetric Helmholtz equation , , by studying the general measures of growth (-order, lower -order, -type, and lower -type) in terms of coefficients and the ratios of these successive coefficients.

#### 1. Introduction

The partial differential equationis called generalized axially symmetric Helmholtz equation (GASHE) and the solutions of (1) are called GASHE functions. The GASHE function is regular about the origin and has the following Bessel-Gegenbauer series expansion:where and , are Bessel functions of first kind, are Gegenbauer polynomials, and .

When series (2) converges absolutely and uniformly on the compact subsets of the whole complex plane, then the GASHE function is said to be entire. For being entire, it is known [1, page 214] that

The concept of order and lower order of an entire function was introduced by R. P. Boas [2] as follows:and the concept of type and lower type has been introduced to give more precise description of growth of entire functions when they have the same nonzero finite order. An entire function, of order , , is said to be of type and lower type ifwhere M(r,f) =

Gilbert and Howard [3] have studied the order of an entire GASHE function in terms of the coefficients occurring in the series expansion (2) of . McCoy [4] studied the rapid growth of entire function solution of Helmholtz equation using the concept of index. Kumar [5, 6] extended and improved this result and studied the growth using the concept of index pair. Khan and Ali [7] studied the generalized order and type of entire GASHE function. Kumar and Singh [8] have studied the lower order and lower type of entire GASHE function in terms of the coefficients in its Bessel-Gegenbauer series expansion (2) when the order of is a finite nonzero number. But, for the class of order and , we cannot define a type of . For this reason, numerous attempts have been made to refine the concept of order and type. Therefore, the -order and -type of an entire function have been defined [9, 10]. In this paper, we extend the work of Kumar and Singh [8] to this new classification of entire function.

For and , we define the -order and lower -order as where and are integers such that where if and if .

The -type and lower -type are defined as and and for and we use the notationsand

We note that the smallest integer is () since, for example, the order is given by .

To prove that , , or we can prove that for the different values of and . From [9], we define the relation between -order, lower -order, the coefficients of u, and the ratios of these successive coefficients as follows.

Theorem 1. *Let be an entire function of -order , and thenwhere*

Theorem 2. *Let be an entire function of -order , and thenwhere*

Theorem 3. *Let be an entire function of -order and a nondecreasing function of for and thenwhere*

Theorem 4. *Let be an entire function of -order and a nondecreasing function of for and thenwhere*

From [10], we define the relation between -type, lower -type, the coefficients of u, and the ratios of these successive coefficients as follows.

Theorem 5. *Let be an entire function. The function is of -order and -type if and only if , where if and if , and is defined aswith if and if *

Theorem 6. *Let be an entire function of -order and lower -type and a nondecreasing function of for and then , wherewith if and if *

Theorem 7. *Let be an entire function of -order and lower -type , and forms a nondecreasing function of for ; thenwhereandwith if and if .*

This implies that we will necessarily have to define . And we have Hence, for the function we have and Since and have the same -order it follows that Now we will prove that and have the same -type for . In the same way we prove thatNow, for the case , we have The same is true forsince and have identical -order and -type.

Lemma 9. *For an entire GASHE function of -order , lower -order , -type , and lower -type . If and are entire functions as defined above, then*

*Proof. *Using (24), we get From the above relation we obtainand since it proves (37) and (38).

Denoting by the common value of -order of , , and , we have from (24) This proves (39) and (40).

Before we start the next section, let us define , , and .

It is known, according to [3], that if is a nondecreasing function of then and also is a nondecreasing function of .
