Orders of solutions of an \(n\)-th order linear differential equation with entire coefficients. (English) Zbl 1039.30012
This paper offers two sectorial type conditions which imply that all nontrivial solutions of the complex linear differential equation \(f^{(n)}+A_{n-1}(z)f^{(n-1)}+\cdots+ A_{1}(z)f'+A_{0}(z)f=0\) with entire coefficients, \(A_{0}(z)\not\equiv 0\), are of infinite order of growth. These results are straightforward generalizations of the corresponding results in the case \(n=2\) due to G. Gundersen in [Trans. Am. Math. Soc. 305, 415–429 (1988; Zbl 0634.34004)]. The proofs offered are immediate adaptions of those given by Gundersen.
