1. Introduction Let  be the class of analytic functions of the form ∞

f ( z) = z + ∑ n = 2 an z n

z ∈ .

(1)

As usual, we denote by  the subclass of  consisting of functions which are normalized by f (0)= 0= f'(0) − 1 and also univalent in  Denote by  the subclass of  consisting of functions whose nonzero coefficients from second on, is given by ∞

f ( z) = z − ∑ n = 2 an z n , an ≥ 0

(2)

For functions f ∈  given by (1) and g ∈  given by ∞

g ( z )= z + ∑ n = 2 bn z n ‍ , we define the Hadamard product (or convolution) of f and g by ∞

( f *g )( z ) = z + ∑ n = 2 an bn z n ‍ , z ∈ .

(3)

A function f ∈  is said to be starlike of order α (0 ≤ α < 1) , if and only if

 zf'( z )  R  > α ( z ∈ ).  f ( z)  This function class is denoted by  * (α ) . We also write

 * (0) =:  * where  * denotes the class of functions f ∈  such that f () is starlike with respect to the origin. A function f ∈  is said to be convex of order

α (0 ≤ α < 1) if and only if

( z ∈ ).

This class is denoted by (α ) Further,  = (0) , the well-known standard class of convex functions. It is an established fact that

f ∈ (α ) ⇔ zf' ∈  * (α ). Let  * (α ) and  (α ) are the class of starlike and convex functions of order α (0 ≤ α < 1) , introduced and studied by Silverman . The class β −  was introduced by Kanas and Wi´sniowska , where its geometric definition and connections with the conic domains were considered. The class β −  was defined pure geometrically as a subclass of univalent functions, that map each circular arc contained in the unit disk  with a center ξ ,| ξ |≤ β (0 ≤ β < 1) , onto a convex arc. The notion of β − uniformly convex function is a natural extension of the classical convexity. Observe that, if β = 0 then the center ξ is the origin and the class β −  reduces to the class of convex univalent functions  . Moreover for β = 1 corresponds to the class of uniformly convex functions  introduced by Goodman [10,11], and studied extensively by Rønning [19,20]. The class β − P is related to the class β −  by means of the wellknown Alexander equivalence between the usual classes of convex  and starlike  * functions. Further the analytic criterion for functions in these classes are given as below(also see [6,19,20,24]). For −1 < α ≤ 1 and β ≥ 0 a function f ∈  is said to be in the class

where b, p, c ∈ , which is natural generalization of Bessel’s equation. The differential equation (14) permits the study of Bessel function, modified Bessel function, spherical Bessel function and modified spherical Bessel functions all together. Solutions of (14) are referred to as the generalized Bessel function of order p. The particular solution given by (13) is called the generalized Bessel function of the first kind of order p. Although the series defined above is convergent everywhere, the function ω p,b,c is generally not univalent in  . It is of interest to

We further let P (λ , α , β ) = P (λ , α , β )∩

and

 (λ , α , β ) =  (λ , α , β )∩ .

9.  (λ , α , 0) =  (λ , α )  10.  (0, α , 0) =  (α ) . Now we state the following characterization properties for the classes P (λ , α , β ), P (λ , α , β ),  (λ , α , β ) and  (λ , α , β ) due to Murugusundaramoorthy and Magesh .

The generalized Bessel function is a recent topic of study in Geometric Function Theory (e.g. see the work of [2,3,4,5] and . Motivated by results on connections between various subclasses of analytic univalent functions by using hypergeometric functions (see [8,13,15,22,25]) and by work of Baricz [2,3,4,5], we obtain necessary and sufficient condition for the function z (2 − u p ( z )) to belong to the classes P (λ , α , β ) and  (λ , α , β )

But the last expression is bounded above by 1 − α if and only if (18) holds. Remark 2. In particular when c = −1 and b = 1, the condition 18 becomes

Concluding Remarks If we put c=-1 and b=1 in above theorems we obtain analogous results of (21). Further by taking β=0 and specializing the parameter λ we can state various interesting results (as proved in above theorems) for the various subclasses listed in the introduction.
