On Certain Classes of Analytic Functions Involving q-Difference Operator

Khalida Inayat Noor, Sadia Riaz


-calculus is ordinary calculus with out notion of limit. The -difference operator has been used to define some classes of analytic functions including -convex and -starlike which are defined in the open unit disc. Some interesting properties of these classes are studied, and certain inclusion relations are established.


q-difference operator, q-starlike, q-convex, convolution, subordiation
