Abstract

We study the growth of solutions of \(f''+A(z)f'+B(z)f=0\), where A(z) and B(z) are non-trivial solutions of another second-order complex differential equations. Some conditions guaranteeing that every non-trivial solution of the equation is of infinite order are obtained, in which the notion of accumulation rays of the zero sequence of entire functions is used.

Keywords

Complex differential equation Entire function Infinite order Asymptotic growth
