**Academic Editor:**Maria Alessandra Ragusa

#### Abstract

The purpose of the current paper is to investigate some geometric properties of the class , called strongly Ozaki close-to-convex functions, such as strongly starlikeness and close-to-convexity. Further, we find sharp bounds on Fekete-Szegö functionals and logarithmic coefficients for functions belonging to the class , which incorporates some known outcomes as the specific cases.

#### 1. Introduction and Preliminaries

Let denote the open unit dick in the complex plane . Let be the class of functions of the following normalized form: which are analytic in and represent by the class of all functions of , which are univalent in . Let denote the set of all analytic functions in that are satisfying the conditions of and for , i.e., , is considered as the family of Schwarz functions.

For two analytic functions and in the open unit dick , it is said that the function is subordinate to the function in , written , if there exists a Schwarz function such that for all . In particular, if the function is univalent in , the following equivalence holds:

We denote by the subclass of consisting of all for which is a starlike of order , with and denote by the subclass of consisting of all for which is a convex of order , with

Also, the subclass of a strongly starlike function of order in is defined as

Note that and are the class of starlike functions in and the class of convex functions in , respectively.

Furthermore, is denoted as the subclass of including functions such as close-to-convex of order if there is a function so that and we denote by the subclass of consisting of all of for which

Individually, is the class of close-to-convex functions in and is the subclass of close-to-convex functions in (see [1]). Here, we understand that is a number in

Recently, many authors have studied the families of analytic functions of the class and also investigated bound estimation problems, geometric property issues, and related topics for functions belonging to these families in [2–10] as well as in the references cited therein.

For example, Cho et al. [4] studied the majorization issue for a general well-known category of starlike functions, which was defined by Ma and Minda [11]. Also, they investigated the majorization issue for the various subclasses for different special functions . Moreover, estimates for the coefficients of majorized functions regarding the class were given. Further, Alimohammadi et al. [2] introduced a subclass of and extended the class , defined by Nunokawa et al. in [12], consisting of all satisfying and studied some geometric properties like close-to-convexity and strongly starlikeness. They determined sharp bounds of Fekete-Szegö functionals and logarithmic coefficients for this class. Kargar and Ebadian [9] considered the subclass of locally univalent functions in satisfying the inequality: for some .

Recently, Allu et al. [3], motivated essentially by the subclass , introduced the class and obtained sharp bounds for three first coefficients and the corresponding inverse coefficients for the functions of this class.

*Definition 1 [3]. *Let and . Then, is called strongly Ozaki close-to-convex if and only if

Note that the class was introduced in [9] and members of this class were called Ozaki close-to-convex functions. Also, was studied by Ponnusamy et al. [13]. Furthermore, .

It is remarkable that by means of the principle of subordination between analytic functions, the definition of the class can be rewritten as follows:

The present paper was undertaken to investigate some geometric features of the class such as close-to-convexity and strongly starlikeness. In addition, we found estimates for the coefficients and give sharp bounds on Fekete-Szegö functionals and logarithmic coefficients for functions belonging to the class , which incorporates some known outcomes as the specific cases.

#### 2. Some Geometric Properties of the Class

In this section, we investigate some geometric properties like strongly starlikeness and close-to-convexity for the class to present the relation of this class with the well-known families of univalent functions. The key in proving is Nunokawa’s lemma [14] (see also [15]), and so in order to prove our result, we require the following lemmas.

We denote by the class of all complex-valued functions for which is univalent at each and for all where

So, the function has a negative value on and a positive value on .

According to the assumption and from (32), it follows that for all for . Also, this shows that the function defined by

Therefore, we get
Now applying (30) and (37), we obtain
which contradicts to (20).

Next, let . Then, we write . Thus, for and utilizing (37), we get

From the above contradictions, it results in

As a result, from the above contradictions, we obtain

#### 3. Coefficient Bounds

In this section, we find sharp bounds on Fekete-Szegö functionals and logarithmic coefficients (see [17–22]) for functions belonging to the class . Also, we present a general problem of coefficients in this class. To prove our main results, some requirements are needed. We remark in passing that the logarithmic coefficients of are defined by the next form:

These coefficients are of great significance for different estimates in the theory of univalent functions (see [19–21]).

Ma and Minda [11] defined the class consisting of several well-known classes as follows: where in here, it is supposed that is a univalent function in with such that it has the following form:

Lemma 10 ([17], Theorem 2). *Let . Then, the logarithmic coefficients of satisfy
and if , , and are real values,
where is given by [23, 24], , and . The bounds (56) and (57) are sharp.*

Lemma 11 [23, 24]. *If with , then, the following sharp estimate is given:

Lemma 13 [26]. *Let be a convex function in with the form If function , then
*

Theorem 14. *Let . Then,
**All the inequalities are sharp.*

*Proof. *Let . From (11), it follows that
Now, it is enough to obtain the estimate of . By Lemma 10 with for , we obtain
where is given by Lemma 11,
First, if we consider
then it is clear that for and for . Therefore, we conclude for .

Also, regarding

that is,
holds for (see Figure 1). Therefore, considering the above results, we conclude for .

Next, considering it is clear that for , and according to the above computation, the inequality holds for . Therefore, for .

Finally, let us consider

It is clear that for . On the other hand, the inequality is equivalent to and this last inequality holds for . Therefore, for . Since , so for .

By applying the above four conclusions from (66), it follows that

Suppose that such that Then, the functions are of the following form: and the are extremal functions for diverse problems in the subclass . Hence, the extremal function for the absolute value of the coefficient is , and those for the absolute value of the coefficients and in the first relations are given as and , respectively, whereas in the second relations, it is given as .
