# Certain Geometric Properties of Generalized Dini Functions

**Academic Editor:**Mitsuru Sugimoto

#### Abstract

We are mainly interested in some geometric properties for the combinations of generalized Bessel functions of the first kind and their derivatives known as Dini functions. In particular, we study the starlikeness of order convexity of order , and close-to-convexity of order for normalized Dini function. We also study close-to-convexity with respect to certain star-like functions. Further, we obtain conditions on generalized Dini function to belong to the Hardy space

#### 1. Introduction

Let be the class of functions of the formanalytic in the open unit disc and denote the class of all functions in which are univalent in . Let , , and denote the classes of star-like, convex, close-to-convex and strongly star-like functions of order , respectively, and they are defined as It is clear that

If and are analytic functions, then the function is said to be subordinate to , written as , if there exist a Schwarz function which is analytic with and such that Furthermore, if the function is univalent in then we have the following equivalent relation:

Special functions have great importance in pure and applied mathematics. The wide use of these functions has attracted many researchers to work on the different directions. Geometric properties of special functions such as hypergeometric functions, Bessel functions, Struve functions, Mittag-Leffler functions, Wright functions, and some other related functions are an ongoing part of research in geometric function theory. We refer to some geometric properties of these functions [1â€“10] and references therein.

Consider the second-order homogeneous differential equationwhere , and are complex numbers. The particular solution of the homogenous differential equation (6) is called the generalized Bessel functions of the first kind of order It is defined aswhere denotes the gamma function. The function unifies the Bessel, modified Bessel, and spherical Bessel functions.

**Special cases**For , we have the Bessel functions of first kind of order , defined asFor , we obtain the modified Bessel functions of first kind of order whose series form is given asFor , we have the spherical Bessel functions of first kind of order , given asâ€‰For more details about these functions, see [5, 11]. Recently, Deniz et al. [12] studied the function which is defined by the relation as â€‰where Using the well-known Pochhammer symbol â€‰we obtain the series form of the function asâ€‰where

Bessel functions are indispensable in many branches of mathematics and applied mathematics. Thus, it is important to study their properties in many aspects. We consider the generalized Dini functions defined aswhere , and . For , we obtain the normalized Dini function of order of the form By putting and , we obtain the following particular cases of normalized Dini functions

Recently Baricz et al. [13] studied the close-to-convexity of Dini functions and some monotonicity properties and functional inequalities for the modified Dini function are discussed in [5]. Further some geometric properties of Dini functions are studied in [14].

This paper studies the Dini function given by the power series (14). We determine the conditions on parameters that ensure the Dini function to be star-like of order , convex of order , and close-to-convex of order We also study the convexity in the domain Sufficient conditions on univalency of an integral operator defined by Dini function are also studied. We find the conditions on normalized Dini function to belong to the Hardy space

To prove our main results, we need the following lemmas.

Lemma 1 (see [15]). *If satisfy for each , then is convex in *

Lemma 5 (see [19]). *If the function is analytic in and in addition or , then is close-to-convex function with respect to the convex function Moreover, if the odd function is analytic in and if or , then is univalent in .*
