**Academic Editor:**Henryk Hudzik

#### Abstract

This article deals with some functional inequalities involving Struve function, generalized Struve function, and modified Struve functions. We aim to find the convexity of the integral operator defined by Struve function, generalized Struve function, and modified Struve functions.

#### 1. Introduction

We denote by the class of functions which are analytic in the open unit disc and of the formLet denote the class of all functions in which are univalent in . Also let and be the subclasses of consisting of all functions which map onto a star shaped with respect to origin and convex domains, respectively. These classes are defined as Ozaki [1] showed that if a function is analytic in and of the form (1) such that and if either or then is univalent and convex in at least one direction in . It shows that the constants and are, in a certain sense, the best possible constants. In [2], for , consider the class consisting of locally univalent functions that satisfy the condition for That is, It can be seen that if and only if . Since whenever , it readily follows that the class is in , for , so in particular, the functions in are univalent functions. For some more detail about these conditions, see [3, 4].

Now we consider the second-order inhomogeneous differential equation The solution of the homogeneous part is Bessel functions of order , where is real or complex number. For some more details, see [5]. The particular solution of the inhomogeneous equation defined in (6) is called the Struve function of order . It is defined asNow we consider the differential equationEquation (8) differs from (6) in the coefficients of . Its particular solution is called the modified Struve functions of order and is given byAgain consider the second-order in-homogenous differential equationwhere Equation (10) generalizes (6) and (8). In particular for , we obtain (6) and for , we obtain (8). Its particular solution has the series form and is called the generalized Struve function of order . This series is convergent everywhere. We take the transformation where and , where denotes the Gamma function. The function is analytic in the whole complex plane and satisfies the differential equation The function unifies the Struve functions and modified Struve functions.

The function was introduced and studied by Orhan and Yagmur [6] and further investigated by [7â€“9]. In last few years, many mathematicians have set the univalence criteria of several those integral operators which preserve the class . By using a variety of different analytic techniques, operators, and special functions, several authors have studied univalence criterion. Recently Din et al. [10] studied the univalence of integral operators involving generalized Struve functions. These operators are defined as follows:In this paper, our main aim is to study the convexity and univalence of the integral operatorsApplications of Struve functions occur in water wave and surface wave problems, unsteady aerodynamics, resistive MHD instability theory, and optical diffraction. More recently, Struve functions appeared in particle quantum dynamic studies of spin decoherence and nanotubes electrodynamics, potential theory, and optics. For more details, we refer to see [11].
