Many authors have been interested in studying various subclasses of univalent functions \(f(z)= z+\cdots\) in the unit disk \(D\). Some of such classes were generated by restricting values of the expressions \({zf'(z)\over f(z)}\) or \({zf'(z)\over f'(z)}+ 1\) to special subdomains of the right half-plane (RHP).
The present authors offer a unified approach to such questions. Let \(\varphi(z)= 1+ a_ 1 z,\dots, a_ 1> 0\) be univalent in \(D\) and map \(D\) onto a domain symmetric about the real axis, situated in the RHP and starlike w.r.t. the point \(\varphi(0)\).
Let \(P(\varphi)\) be the class of all analytic functions \(P(z)= 1+ b_ 1z+\cdots\) in \(D\) and such that \(p(D)\subset \varphi(D)\). The class \(P(\varphi)\) is then used to define clases of convex and starlike families of univalent functions in \(D\). Distortion theorems, covering properties, convolution results and some coefficient inequalities are given.
