Let 𝑓(𝑧) be analytic in the unit disk π‘ˆ={π‘§βˆΆ|𝑧|<1} with 𝑓(0)=π‘“ξ…ž(0)βˆ’1=0 and (𝑓(𝑧)/𝑧)π‘“ξ…ž(𝑧)β‰ 0. By using the method of differential subordinations, we determine the largest number 𝛼(𝛽,πœ†,πœ‡,π‘š) such that, for some 𝛽,πœ†,πœ‡, and π‘š, the differential subordination πœ†(π‘§π‘“ξ…ž(𝑧)/𝑓(𝑧))1βˆ’πœ‡(1+(π‘§π‘“ξ…žξ…ž(𝑧)/π‘“ξ…ž(𝑧))βˆ’π‘§π‘“ξ…ž(𝑧)/𝑓(𝑧))+(π‘§π‘“ξ…ž(𝑧)/𝑓(𝑧))π‘šβ‰Ί(1+𝑧/1βˆ’π‘§)𝛼(𝛽,πœ†,πœ‡,π‘š)(π‘§βˆˆπ‘ˆ) implies π‘§π‘“ξ…ž(𝑧)/𝑓(𝑧)β‰Ί(1+𝑧/1βˆ’π‘§)𝛽. Some useful consequences of this result are also given.
