Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue devoted to the Geometric Theory of Analytic Functions will bring together the newest research achievements of scholars studying the complex-valued functions of one variable. The issue will cover all aspects of this topic, starting with special classes of univalent functions, operator-related results, studies using the theory of differential subordination and superordination, or any other techniques which can be applied in the field of complex analysis and its applications.

The Editors of this Special Issue are pleased to invite the authors to submit their original results related to analytic functions and even studies related to non-analytic functions, if any research was done comparing the two types of complex-valued functions. We await the latest results related to classic differential subordination and superordination, strong differential subordination and superordination, and fuzzy differential subordination and superordination. We believe researchers are eager to see how differential, integral, and differential–integral operators are used on the special classes of univalent functions already known or newly introduced and what their importance in the field is. This Special Issue will also publish contributions related exclusively to complex analysis and we hope to find among the results new approaches for Geometric Function Theory which could inspire further achievements in the field.

Recently, Special Function Theory (SPFT) and Operator Theory (OPT) have acquired a lot of concern due to their considerable applications in disciplines of pure and applied mathematics. The Hurwitz-Lerch Zeta type functions, as a part of Special Function Theory (SPFT), are significant in developing and providing further new studies. In complex domain, the convolution tool is a salutary technique for systematic analytical characterization of geometric functions. The analytic functions in the punctured unit disk are the so-called meromorphic functions. In this present analysis, a new convolution complex operator defined on meromorphic functions related with the Hurwitz-Lerch Zeta type functions and Kummer functions is considered. Certain sufficient stipulations are stated for several formulas of this defining operator to attain subordination. Indeed, these outcomes are an extension of known outcomes of starlikeness, convexity, and close to convexity. Full article

The theory of differential subordinations has been extended from the analytic functions to the harmonic complex-valued functions in 2015. In a recent paper published in 2019, the authors have considered the dual problem of the differential subordination for the harmonic complex-valued functions and have defined the differential superordination for harmonic complex-valued functions. Finding the best subordinant of a differential superordination is among the main purposes in this research subject. In this article, conditions for a harmonic complex-valued function p to be the best subordinant of a differential superordination for harmonic complex-valued functions are given. Examples are also provided to show how the theoretical findings can be used and also to prove the connection with the results obtained in 2015. Full article

Asymptotic analysis is a branch of mathematical analysis that describes the limiting behavior of the function. This behavior appears when we study the solution of differential equations analytically. The recent work deals with a special class of third type of Painlevé differential equation (PV). Our aim is to find asymptotic, symmetric univalent solution of this class in a symmetric domain with respect to the real axis. As a result that the most important problem in the asymptotic expansion is the connections bound (coefficients bound), we introduce a study of this problem. Full article

Using the recently introduced Sălăgean integro-differential operator, three new classes of bi-univalent functions are introduced in this paper. In the study of bi-univalent functions, estimates on the first two Taylor–Maclaurin coefficients are usually given. We go further in the present paper and bounds of the first three coefficients a 2 , a 3 and a 4 of the functions in the newly defined classes are given. Obtaining Fekete–Szegő inequalities for different classes of functions is a topic of interest at this time as it will be shown later by citing recent papers. So, continuing the study on the coefficients of those classes, the well-known Fekete–Szegő functional is obtained for each of the three classes. Full article

In the z- domain, differential subordination is a complex technique of geometric function theory based on the idea of differential inequality. It has formulas in terms of the first, second and third derivatives. In this study, we introduce some applications of the third-order differential subordination for a newly defined linear operator that includes ξ -Generalized-Hurwitz–Lerch Zeta functions (GHLZF). These outcomes are derived by investigating the appropriate classes of admissible functions. Full article

Abstract
Let Ω denote the class of functions f ( z ) = z + a 2 z 2 + a 3 z 3 + belonging to the normalized analytic function class A in the open unit disk U = z : z < 1 , which are bi-univalent in U , that is, both the function f and its inverse f 1 are univalent in U . In this paper, we introduce and investigate two new subclasses of the function class Ω of bi-univalent functions defined in the open unit disc U , which are associated with a new differential operator of analytic functions involving binomial series. Furthermore, we find estimates on the Taylor–Maclaurin coefficients | a 2 | and | a 3 | for functions in these new subclasses. Several (known or new) consequences of the results are also pointed out.

Abstract
A new differential-integral operator of the form I n f ( z ) = ( 1 λ ) S n f ( z ) + λ L n f ( z ) , z U , f A , 0 λ 1 , n N is introduced in this paper, where S n is the Sălăgean differential operator and L n is the Alexander integral operator. Using this operator, a new integral operator is defined as: F ( z ) = β + γ z γ 0 z I n f ( z ) · t β + γ 2 d t 1 β , where I n f ( z ) is the differential-integral operator given above. Using a differential subordination, we prove that the integral operator F ( z ) is starlike. Full article

This work investigates centered polygonal lacunary functions restricted from the unit disk onto symmetry angle space which is defined by the symmetry angles of a given centered polygonal lacunary function. This restriction allows for one to consider only the p-sequences of the centered polygonal lacunary functions which are bounded, but not convergent, at the natural boundary. The periodicity of the p-sequences naturally gives rise to a convergent subsequence, which can be used as a grounds for decomposition of the restricted centered polygonal lacunary functions. A mapping of the unit disk to the sphere allows for the study of the line integrals of restricted centered polygonal that includes analytic progress towards closed form representations. Obvious closures of the domain obtained from the spherical map lead to four distinct topological spaces of the “broom topology” type. Full article

It is well known that the conformable and the symmetric differential operators have formulas in terms of the first derivative. In this document, we combine the two definitions to get the symmetric conformable derivative operator (SCDO). The purpose of this effort is to provide a study of SCDO connected with the geometric function theory. These differential operators indicate a generalization of well known differential operator including the Sàlàgean differential operator. Our contribution is to impose two classes of symmetric differential operators in the open unit disk and to describe the further development of these operators by introducing convex linear symmetric operators. In addition, by acting these SCDOs on the class of univalent functions, we display a set of sub-classes of analytic functions having geometric representation, such as starlikeness and convexity properties. Investigations in this direction lead to some applications in the univalent function theory of well known formulas, by defining and studying some sub-classes of analytic functions type Janowski function and convolution structures. Moreover, by using the SCDO, we introduce a generalized class of Briot–Bouquet differential equations to introduce, what is called the symmetric conformable Briot–Bouquet differential equations. We shall show that the upper bound of this class is symmetric in the open unit disk. Full article
