A useful family of fractional derivative and integral operators plays a crucial role on the study of mathematics and applied science. In this paper, we introduce an operator defined on the family of analytic functions in the open unit disk by using the generalized fractional derivative and integral operator with convolution. For this operator, we study the subordination-preserving properties and their dual problems. Differential sandwich-type results for this operator are also investigated. Full article

The aim of the present paper is to introduce a new class of analytic functions by using a q-integral operator in the conic region. It is worth mentioning that these regions are symmetric along the real axis. We find the coefficient estimates, the Fekete–Szegö inequality, the sufficiency criteria, the distortion result, and the Hankel determinant problem for functions in this class. Furthermore, we study the inverse coefficient estimates for functions in this class. Full article

The symmetric differential operator is a generalization operating of the well-known ordinary derivative. These operators have advantages in boundary value problems, statistical studies and spectral theory. In this effort, we introduce a new symmetric differential operator (SDO) and its integral in the open unit disk. This operator is a generalization of the Sàlàgean differential operator. Our study is based on geometric function theory and its applications in the open unit disk. We formulate new classes of analytic functions using SDO depending on the symmetry properties. Moreover, we define a linear combination operator containing SDO and the Ruscheweyh derivative. We illustrate some inclusion properties and other inequalities involving SDO and its integral.

This article presents certain families of analytic functions regarding q-starlikeness and q-convexity of complex order γ ( γ C \ 0 ) . This introduced a q-integral operator and certain subclasses of the newly introduced classes are defined by using this q-integral operator. Coefficient bounds for these subclasses are obtained. Furthermore, the ( δ , q )-neighborhood of analytic functions are introduced and the inclusion relations between the ( δ , q )-neighborhood and these subclasses of analytic functions are established. Moreover, the generalized hyper-Bessel function is defined, and application of main results are discussed. Full article

The aim of this article is to establish the existence of the solution of non-linear functional integral equations x ( l , h ) = U ( l , h , x ( l , h ) ) + F l , h , 0 l 0 h P ( l , h , r , u , x ( r , u ) ) d r d u , x ( l , h ) × G l , h , 0 a 0 a Q l , h , r , u , x ( r , u ) d r d u , x ( l , h ) of two variables, which is of the form of two operators in the setting of Banach algebra C [ 0 , a ] × [ 0 , a ] , a > 0 . Our methodology relies upon the measure of noncompactness related to the fixed point hypothesis. We have used the measure of noncompactness on C [ 0 , a ] × [ 0 , a ] and a fixed point theorem, which is a generalization of Darbo’s fixed point theorem for the product of operators. We additionally illustrate our outcome with the help of an interesting example. Full article

The behavior of the analytical solutions of the fractional differential equation described by the fractional order derivative operators is the main subject in many stability problems. In this paper, we present a new stability notion of the fractional differential equations with exogenous input. Motivated by the success of the applications of the Mittag-Leffler functions in many areas of science and engineering, we present our work here. Applications of Mittag-Leffler functions in certain areas of physical and applied sciences are also very common. During the last two decades, this class of functions has come into prominence after about nine decades of its discovery by a Swedish Mathematician Mittag-Leffler, due to the vast potential of its applications in solving the problems of physical, biological, engineering, and earth sciences, to name just a few. Moreover, we propose the generalized Mittag-Leffler input stability conditions. The left generalized fractional differential equation has been used to help create this new notion. We investigate in depth here the Lyapunov characterizations of the generalized Mittag-Leffler input stability of the fractional differential equation with input. Full article

In the current article, we consider certain subfamilies S e and C e of univalent functions associated with exponential functions which are symmetric along real axis in the region of open unit disk. For these classes our aim is to find the bounds of Hankel determinant of order three. Further, the estimate of third Hankel determinant for the family S e in this work improve the bounds which was investigated recently. Moreover, the same bounds have been investigated for 2-fold symmetric and 3-fold symmetric functions. Full article

Vehicle collaborative content downloading has become a hotspot in current vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) research. However, in reality, the highly dynamic nature of VANET makes users lose resources easily, and the transmission of invalid segment data also wastes valuable bandwidth and storage of the users’ vehicles. In addition, the individual need of each customer vehicle should also be taken into consideration when selecting an agent vehicle for downloading. In this paper, a novel scheme is proposed for vehicle selection in the download of cooperative content from the Internet, by considering the basic evaluation information of the vehicle. To maximize the overall throughput of the system, a collaborative content downloading algorithm is proposed, which is based on fuzzy evaluation and a customer’s own expectations, in order to solve the problems of agent vehicle selection. With the premise of ensuring successful downloading and the selection preferences of customer vehicles, linear programming is used to optimize the distribution of agent vehicles and maximize customer’s satisfaction. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme works well in terms of average quality of service, average bandwidth efficiency, failure frequency, and average consumption. Full article

The concept of statistically deferred-weighted summability was recently studied by Srivastava et al. (Math. Methods Appl. Sci. 41 (2018), 671–683).

The concept of statistically deferred-weighted summability was recently studied by Srivastava et al. (Math. Methods Appl. Sci. 41 (2018), 671–683). The present work is concerned with the deferred-weighted summability mean in various aspects defined over a modular space associated with a generalized double sequence of functions. In fact, herein we introduce the idea of relatively modular deferred-weighted statistical convergence and statistically as well as relatively modular deferred-weighted summability for a double sequence of functions. With these concepts and notions in view, we establish a theorem presenting a connection between them. Moreover, based upon our methods, we prove an approximation theorem of the Korovkin type for a double sequence of functions on a modular space and demonstrate that our theorem effectively extends and improves most (if not all) of the previously existing results. Finally, an illustrative example is provided here by the generalized bivariate Bernstein–Kantorovich operators of double sequences of functions in order to demonstrate that our established theorem is stronger than its traditional and statistical versions.

We construct Stancu-type Bernstein operators based on Bézier bases with shape parameter λ [ 1 , 1 ] and calculate their moments. The uniform convergence of the operator and global approximation result by means of Ditzian-Totik modulus of smoothness are established. Also, we establish the direct approximation theorem with the help of second order modulus of smoothness, calculate the rate of convergence via Lipschitz-type function, and discuss the Voronovskaja-type approximation theorems. Finally, in the last section, we construct the bivariate case of Stancu-type λ -Bernstein operators and study their approximation behaviors. Full article
