1. I NTRODUCTION
Let H be the class of functions analytic in ∆ := {z : |z| &lt; 1} and H(a, n) be the subclass
of H consisting of functions of the form f (z) = a + an z n + an+1 z n+1 + &middot; &middot; &middot; . Let A be the
subclass of H consisting of functions of the form f (z) = z + a2 z 2 + &middot; &middot; &middot; . Let p, h ∈ H and let
φ(r, s, t; z) : C3 &times; ∆ → C. If p and φ(p(z), zp0 (z), z 2 p00 (z); z) are univalent and if p satisfies
the second order superordination
(1.1)
h(z) ≺ φ(p(z), zp0 (z), z 2 p00 (z); z),
then p is a solution of the differential superordination (1.1). (If f is subordinate to F , then F is
superordinate to f .) An analytic function q is called a subordinant if q ≺ p for all p satisfying
(1.1). A univalent subordinant qe that satisfies q ≺ qe for all subordinants q of (1.1) is said to be

the best subordinant. Recently Miller and Mocanu  obtained conditions on h, q and φ for
which the following implication holds:
h(z) ≺ φ(p(z), zp0 (z), z 2 p00 (z); z) ⇒ q(z) ≺ p(z).
Using the results of Miller and Mocanu , Bulboacă  considered certain classes of first
order differential superordinations as well as superordination-preserving integral operators .
Ali et al.  have used the results of Bulboacă  and obtained sufficient conditions for certain
normalized analytic functions f (z) to satisfy
q1 (z) ≺
zf 0 (z)
≺ q2 (z),
f (z)
where q1 and q2 are given univalent functions in ∆ with q1 (0) = 1 and q2 (0) = 1. Shanmugam
et al.  obtained sufficient conditions for a normalized analytic function f (z) to satisfy
f (z)
q1 (z) ≺ 0
≺ q2 (z)
zf (z)
z 2 f 0 (z)
and q1 (z) ≺

2. P RELIMINARIES
For our present investigation, we shall need the following definition and results.
Definition 2.1 ([14, Definition 2, p. 817]). Denote by Q, the set of all functions f (z) that are
analytic and injective on ∆ − E(f ), where
E(f ) = ζ ∈ ∂∆ : lim f (z) = ∞
z→ζ
and are such that f 0 (ζ) 6= 0 for ζ ∈ ∂∆ − E(f ).
Lemma 2.1 ([13, Theorem 3.4h, p. 132]). Let q(z) be univalent in the unit disk ∆ and θ
and φ be analytic in a domain D containing q(∆) with φ(w) 6= 0 when w ∈ q(∆). Set
Q(z) = zq 0 (z)φ(q(z)), h(z) = θ(q(z)) + Q(z). Suppose that
(1) Q(z)
starlike
univalent in ∆, and
n is
o
zh0 (z)
(2) &lt; Q(z) &gt; 0 for z ∈ ∆.
If
θ(p(z)) + zp0 (z)φ(p(z)) ≺ θ(q(z)) + zq 0 (z)φ(q(z)),
then p(z) ≺ q(z) and q(z) is the best dominant.

Lemma 2.2 (). Let q be a convex univalent function in ∆ and ψ, γ ∈ C with
zq 00 (z) ψ
&lt; 1+ 0
+
&gt; 0.
q (z)
γ
If p(z) is analytic in ∆ and
ψp(z) + γzp0 (z) ≺ ψq(z) + γzq 0 (z)
then p(z) ≺ q(z) and q(z) is the best dominant.
Lemma 2.3 (). Let q(z) be convex univalent in the unit disk ∆ and ϑ and ϕ be analytic in a
domain D containing q(∆). Suppose that
(1) &lt; [ϑ0 (q(z))/ϕ(q(z))] &gt; 0 for z ∈ ∆,
(2) zq 0 (z)ϕ(q(z)) is starlike univalent in ∆.
If p(z) ∈ H[q(0), 1] ∩ Q, with p(∆) ⊆ D, and ϑ(p(z)) + zp0 (z)ϕ(p(z)) is univalent in ∆,
and
(2.1)
ϑ(q(z)) + zq 0 (z)ϕ(q(z)) ≺ ϑ(p(z)) + zp0 (z)ϕ(p(z)),
then q(z) ≺ p(z) and q(z) is the best subordinant.
Lemma 2.4 ([14, Theorem 8, p. 822]). Let q be convex univalent in ∆ and γ ∈ C. Further
assume that &lt; [γ] &gt; 0. If p(z) ∈ H[q(0), 1] ∩ Q, p(z) + γzp0 (z) is univalent in ∆, then
q(z) + γzq 0 (z) ≺ p(z) + γzp0 (z)
implies q(z) ≺ p(z) and q(z) is the best subordinant.

3. M AIN R ESULTS
We begin with the following:
Theorem 3.1. Let q(z) be univalent in ∆, λ ∈ C and α1 &gt; 0, δ &gt; 0. Suppose q(z) satisfies

then

and q(z) is the best dominant.
Proof. Define the function p(z) by
(3.3)
p(z) :=

Then

hence the hypothesis (3.2) of Theorem 3.1 yields the subordination:

Now Theorem 3.1 follows by applying Lemma 2.2 with ψ = 1 and γ = λδ .
When l = 2, m = 1, α1 = a, α2 = 1, and β1 = c in Theorem 3.1, we have the following
corollary.

Corollary 3.2. Let q(z) be univalent in ∆, λ ∈ C and α1 &gt; 0, δ &gt; 0. Suppose q(z) satisfies
(3.1). If f ∈ A and satisfies the subordination,

and q(z) is the best dominant.
By taking l = 1, m = 0 and α1 = 1 in Theorem 3.1, we get the following corollary.
Corollary 3.3. Let q(z) be univalent in ∆, λ ∈ C and α1 &gt; 0, δ &gt; 0. Suppose q(z) satisfies

Proof. Define the function p(z) by
p(z) =

It is clear that p(0) = 1 and p(z) is analytic in ∆. By using the identity (2.3), from (3.3) we get,

By setting

we observe that ϕ and θ are analytic in C \ {0}. Also we see that
θ(w) = 1
and
ϕ(w) =
Q(z) := zq 0 (z)ϕ(q(z)) =
γzq 0 (z)
,
q(z)
and
h(z) := ϑ(q(z)) + Q(z) = 1 + γ

It is clear that Q(z) is starlike univalent in ∆ and

By the hypothesis of Theorem 3.5, the result now follows by an application of Lemma 2.1. 1
Specializing the values of l = 1, m = 0, α1 = 1 and q(z) = (1−z)
(b ∈ C − {0}), γ =

and δ = 1 in Theorem 3.5 above, we have the following corollary as stated in .

and (1−z)

Choosing the values of l = 1, m = 0, α1 = 1 and q(z) = (1−z)
(b ∈ C − {0}), γ =

and δ = a 6= 0 in Theorem 3.5 above, we have the following corollary as stated in .

Similarly for l = 2, m = 1, α1 = 1, α2 = 1, β1 = 1 and q(z) = (1−z)
(b ∈ C − {0}),

γ = b and δ = 1 in Theorem 3.5 above, we get the following result as stated in .

Next, applying Lemma 2.3, we have the following theorem.

By setting ϑ(w) = w and φ(w) = δ , it is easily observed that ϑ(w) is analytic in C. Also,
φ(w) is analytic in C\{0} and φ(w) 6= 0, (w ∈ C\{0}).
