# Sufficiency Criteria for -Starlike Functions Associated with Cardioid

**Academic Editor:**Sivasubramanian Srikandan

#### Abstract

This article deals with the -differential subordinations for starlike functions associated with the lemniscate of Bernoulli and cardioid domain. The primary goal of this work is to find the conditions on for , where is analytic function and is subordinated by the function which is producing cardioid domain as its image domain while mapping the open unit disk. Along with this, certain sufficient conditions for -starlikeness of analytic functions are determined.

#### 1. Introduction

Consider the class of analytic functions defined in open unit disk with normalization condition and which provides the Taylor series expansion of the form

The class consists of functions from which are univalent functions in , and the class contains the analytic functions whose codomains are bounded by the open right half plane. For more details, see [1, 2].

The concept of differential subordination plays a vital role in the study of geometric properties of analytic functions. It was first introduced by Lindelof, but Littlewood [3] did the remarkable work in this field. Many researchers contributed in the study of differential subordinations. History and the development of works in the field related to differential subordination are briefly described and included in the book by Miller and Mocanu [4]. The major development in the field of differential subordination started in 1974 by Miller et al. [5].

An analytic function is considered to be subordinated by analytic function , denoted as , if there exists another analytic function with the property that and such that Moreover, in case of univalent functions in , we can have

Recently, many mathematicians have used this concept of differential subordinations to prove many helpful results. Familiar Jack’s lemma [6] has produced several advancements for the generalization of differential subordinations and found many applications in this field. The work of Ma and Minda [7] in this field is not negligible as they studied the function which is analytic, and condition of normalization given for prescribed function is defined as and with a positive real part. With the help of the function , they introduced the following subclasses for starlike and convex functions.

These subclasses helped many researchers for further studies in the field of differential subordination. Ali et al. [8] used the concept of differential subordination to prove analytic functions to be Janowski starlike. Ali et al. [9] also evaluated several differential subordinations: and found the for . Raina and Sokol [10] used subordinations for coefficient estimation of starlike functions. Similar kinds of works have also been done by Sharma et al. [11] by using starlikeness for cardioid function, and Yunus et al. [12] studied for limacon.

Quantum calculus is the new branch of mathematics and is equally important for its applications both in physics and in mathematics as well. Jackson [13, 14] presented the functions of -derivatives and -integrals and highlighted their definitions for the first time. He also holds the credit for the systematic initiation of -calculus. Ismail et al. [15] were the pioneers to contribute in the application of -calculus in geometric function theory. The new form of the subclass of starlike functions with the involvement of -derivative was introduced by Seoudy and Aouf [16]. By choosing different image domains instead of , so many attractive subclasses of starlike functions are obtained. Mahmood et al. [17] have dealt with the class of -starlike functions by relating them with conic domains. The most recent work related to -starlikeness of functions is done by Srivastava et al. [18]. The contributions of Haq et al. [19] are remarkable. They proved differential subordinations with -analogue for cardioid and limacon domain with the involvement of Janowski function and found the sufficient conditions for -starlike functions. The version of Jack’s lemma which is the soul of our work was given by Çetinkaya and Polatoglu [20]. These recent efforts of mathematicians discussed above motivated us and provide strength to contribute in the field of differential subordinations with the involvement of its -analogue, which is the main idea of this article. The foundation of all this work in -analogue is the -derivative which is defined below.

The -derivative of a complex-valued function , defined in the domain , is given as follows:where This implies the following:provided the function is differentiable in domain The function has Maclaurin’s series representationwhere

For more details about -derivatives and recent work on it, we refer the reader to [21–25].
