  • Srivastava, H.M.; Bansal, Deepak (Journal of the Egyptian Mathematical Society, 2015)
    In the present investigation, we consider a new subclass Σ(τ, γ, φ) of the class Σ consisting of analytic and bi-univalent functions in the open unit disk U. For functions belonging to the class Σ(τ, γ, φ) introduced here, ...
