**Academic Editor:**Adrian Petrusel

#### Abstract

In this article, we find some geometric properties like starlikeness, convexity of order , close-to-convexity of order , and close-to-convexity of normalized Wright functions with respect to the certain functions. The sufficient conditions for the normalized Wright functions belonging to the classes and are the part of our investigations. We also obtain the conditions on normalized Wright function to belong to the Hardy space .

#### 1. Introduction and Preliminaries

Let denote the class of all analytic functions in the open unit disk and denote the space of all bounded functions on . This is Banach algebra with respect to the norm We denote , , for the space of all functions such that admits a harmonic majorant. is a Banach space if the norm of is defined to be th root of the least harmonic majorant of for some fixed . Another equivalent definition of norm is given as follows: let , and setThen the function if is bounded for all It is clear that For some details, see [1]. It is also known [1] that in , and then Let be the class of functions of the form analytic in the open unit disc , and denote the class of all functions in which are univalent in . Let , , and denote the classes of starlike, convex, and close-to-convex functions of order , respectively, and they are defined asIt is clear that are the classes of starlike, convex, and close-to-convex functions, respectively. Also consider the subclasses and of , defined by the following relations:where The purpose of these subclasses is that when we put in (8), we get and The sufficient coefficient conditions by which a function as defined in (5) belongs to the classes and arerespectively. For some details about these classes, see [2, 3]. Recently, Baricz [4] introduced the classesFor we denote the classes and by and , respectively. Also for and , we have the classes and .

Let given by (5) and given byand then Hadamard product (or convolution) of and is defined asRecently, Prajapat [5] studied some geometric properties of Wright functionThis series is absolutely convergent in for and absolutely convergent in open unit disc for Furthermore this function is entire. The Wright functions were introduced by Wright [6] and have been used in the asymptotic theory of partitions, in the theory of integral transforms of the Hankel type and in Mikusinski operational calculus. Recently, Wright functions have been found in the solution of partial differential equations of fractional order. It was found that the corresponding Green functions can be represented in terms of the Wright function [7, 8]. For positive rational number , the Wright function can be represented in terms of generalized hypergeometric function. For some details, see [9, Section ]. In particular, the function can be expressed in terms of the Bessel functions , given asThe Wright function generalizes various functions like Array function, Whittaker function, entire auxiliary functions, and so forth. For more details, we refer to [9]. Prajapat [5] discussed some geometric properties of the Wright functions,and their normalization of the formwhere The Pochhammer (or Appell) symbol, defined in terms of Euler’s gamma functions, is given as . We refer for some geometric properties of special functions like hypergeometric functions [10, 11], Bessel functions [4, 12–14], and Struve functions [15, 16].

We need the following results to prove our results.

Lemma 1 (see [17]). *If satisfies the inequalitythen*

#### 3. Close-to-Convexity of Wright Functions with respect to Certain Functions

The work in this section is motivated by the works of Baricz, Orhan and Yagmur, and Ponnusamy and Vuorinen [13, 15, 22, 23]. In this section we will discuss some conditions on the parameters and under which the Wright functions are assured close-to-convex with respect to the functionsBy using Lemma 2, we will get the following results.

By Lemma 2, it follows that is close-to-convex with respect to the function

By Lemma 2 it follows that is close-to-convex with respect to the function

#### 4. Hardy Spaces of Wright Functions

Hardy spaces of hypergeometric functions are recently studied by Ponnusamy [24]. Baricz [4] used the idea of Ponnusamy and found the Hardy spaces of Bessel functions. Yagmur and Orhan [25] studied the same problem for generalized Struve functions. Similarly, Yagmur [26] studied the problem for Lommel functions. For Hardy spaces related to some classes of analytic functions, we refer to [27–30].

Theorem 14. *Let, , Then *(i)*for *(ii)*for *
