Integral Representation
In this section we obtain integral representation for DSpm,n (f ∗ g)(z).

m,n
e 0 t dt dt.
DSp (f ∗ g)(z) = (pγ − 1)
0
Proof. By letting DSpm,n (f ∗ g)(z) = M (z) in (7) we have
zM 00 (z)
&lt; pγ.
Re 1 +
M 0 (z)
Thus
zM 00 (z)
&lt; pγ − 1
M 0 (z)
or
zM 00 (z)
= Q(z)(pγ − 1)
M 0 (z)
where |Q(z)| &lt; 1, z ∈ ∆.
So
M 00 (z)
M 0 (z)

log(M (z)) =

So by Theorem 2.1 f (z) ∈ Ap (m, n, γ).
g(z)
Corollary. The class Ap (m, n, γ) is closed under convex linear combination.
Theorem 5.2. Let Fp (z) = z p and

then (f ∗ h)(z) is also in the
g(z)
class Ap (m, n, γ).
g(z)
Proof. Since f (z) ∈ Ap (m, n, γ) then by Theorem 2.1 we have
∞
X
k(k − pγ)θ(k, p)ak bk ≤ p2 (γ − 1).

By using the last inequality and the fact that
