#### Abstract

Sharp upper bounds of for the function belonging to certain subclass of starlike functions with respect to -symmetric points of complex order are obtained. Also, applications of our results to certain functions defined through convolution with a normalized analytic function are given. In particular, Fekete-Szegö inequalities for certain classes of functions defined through fractional derivatives are obtained.

If 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 . Furthermore, if the function is univalent in , then we have the following equivalence (see [1, 2]):

Sakaguchi [3] introduced a class of functions starlike with respect to symmetric points, which consists of functions satisfying the inequality

Chand and Singh [4] introduced a class of functions starlike with respect to -symmetric points, which consists of functions satisfying the inequality where

Al-Shaqsi and Darus [5] defined the linear operator as follows: and in general where

In this paper, we define the following class () as follows.

*Definition 1. *Let be univalent starlike function with respect to which maps the unit disk onto a region in the right half plane which is symmetric with respect to the real axis. Let be a complex number and let . Then functions are in the class if

[15]),(xii) (see Libera [16]),(xiii) (see Chichra [17]),(xiv) and (see Aouf and Silverman [18]),(xv) (see Keogh and Markes [19]).Also, we note the following: In this paper, we obtain the Fekete-Szegö inequalities for the functions in the class . We also give application of our results to certain functions defined through convolution and, in particular, we consider the class defined by fractional derivatives.
