Some Results on L-Functions Related to Sharing Two Finite Sets

  • Pulak SahooEmail author

In this article, we investigate the value distribution of L-functions in the (extended) Selberg class and establish two theorems which show how an L-function and a meromorphic function are uniquely determined by their sharing two finite sets. Our results answer a question of Lin and Lin (Filomat 30:3795–3806, 2016). Examples are also given in support of the accuracy of the results.
