A Survey On Some Special Classes of Bazilevič Functions and Related Function Classes

Part of the Trends in Mathematics book series (TM)


This chapter is a survey in which we analyze recent developments of some interesting subclasses \({\mathcal U}(\lambda)\), \({\mathcal U}(\lambda,\mu)\), and \({\mathcal U}(\alpha,\lambda,\mu)\) of Bazilevič and non-Bazilevič functions. We discuss historic development of these classes and discuss numerous properties and interesting results pertaining to these classes.
