Abstract

The aim of present investigation is to study a new class of analytic function related with the Sokol-Nunokawa class. We derived relationships of this class with strongly starlike functions and obtained many interesting results.

1. Introduction

Let be the class of functions having the series representation,which are analytic in the open unit disk and normalized by and .

A function is in class of univalent function if and only if implies , for all , . An analytic function subordinate to an analytic function denoted as if and only if there exists an analytic function in with and , , such that , . In particular, if is univalent in , then if and only if and .

Let denote the class of analytic functions of the form such that in . A function is in class of normalize convex function if and only if . Also, a function is in class if and only if .

In 1991, Goodman [1] introduced the class of uniformly convex function . A function is in class if, for every circular arc with center in , the arc is convex. Also, a function is in class if, for every circular arc contained in with center in , the arc is starlike.

The classes and were studied by Ma and Minda [2, 3] and Ronning [4, 5]. They provided the analytic characterization of class and as follows:and

In 1999, Kanas et al. [6] introduced the class , , of -uniformly convex functions as follows:

Furthermore, the class of -uniformly starlike functions is defined as follows:

Many authors had investigated the interesting properties of the abovementioned classes. For details, see [613]. The class [14, 15] denotes the class of strongly starlike functions of order , which is defined as follows:

In 2015, Sokol et al. [16] introduced the class as follows:

For , , in a recent paper, Darus et al. [17] defined a new class as follows:

The class has some interesting relationship with other classes of univalent functions. Motivated from [1721], we introduced a new class of analytic functions and found its relation with some other existing classes of analytic functions.

Definition 1. Let , . Then, is in class if and only ifFor special values of parameter , we obtained many known classes of analytic functions. For example, if we take , then , the class of convex functions.
