#### Abstract

The purpose of the present paper is to investigate some properties of multivalent analytic functions.

#### 1. Introduction

Let denote the class of the functions of the form which are analytic in the open unit disk . Also let the Hadamard product (or convolution) of two functions be given by

In [1], Liu introduced the following generalized Srivastava-Attiya operator : where It is not difficult to see from (5) and (6) that When , the operator is the well-known Srivastava-Attiya operator [2]. The generalized Srivastava-Attiya operator has been studied by several authors (see [1–5]).

In this investigation, we focus on certain inequalities consisting of the following differential operator: Our results generalize the recent results obtained by Irmak et al. [6].

In order to prove our main results, we need the following lemmas.

Lemma 1 (see [7]). *Let and suppose that the function satisfies for all , , and . If is analytic in and for all , then .*

Lemma 2 (see [7]). *Let and suppose that the function satisfies for all , , and . If is analytic in and for all , then .*

#### 2. Main Results

We now state and then prove each of our main results given by Theorems 3 and 4 below.

Theorem 3. *Let with for all , and also let and . If
**
where , then
*

*Proof. *Put
Then the function is analytic in with . A simple computation shows that

Now letting
we obtain that for all . Further, for any , , and , since , we also have
which shows that . Therefore, according to Lemma 1, we obtain . This completes the proof of Theorem 3.

Theorem 4. *Let with for , and also let and . If
**
where
**
then
*

*Proof. *Suppose that
Then is analytic in . It is easily seen from (18) that
Further, since
it leads to for . Also, for any , and , we have
that is, . Finally, by Lemma 2, we obtain that . The proof of Theorem 4 is completed.

*Remark 5. *For and , Theorems 3 and 4 reduce to the results obtained by Irmak et al. [6].
