On Hankel Determinant \({{\varvec{H}}}_\mathbf{2}{} \mathbf{(3)}\) for Univalent Functions

Open Access


In this paper we consider the Hankel determinant \(H_2(3) = a_3a_5 - a_4{}^2\) defined for the coefficients of a function f which belongs to the class \(\mathcal {S}\) of univalent functions or to its subclasses: \(S^*\) of starlike functions, \(\mathcal {K}\) of convex functions and \(\mathcal {R}\) of functions whose derivative has a positive real part. Bounds of \(|H_2(3)|\) for these classes are found; the bound for \(\mathcal {R}\) is sharp. Moreover, the sharp results for starlike functions and convex functions for which \(a_2=0\) are obtained. It is also proved that \(\max \{|H_2(3)|: f\in \mathcal {S}\}\) is greater than 1.
