An analytic function f(z)=z+an+1zn+1+, defined on the unit disk ={z:|z|<1}, is in the class Sp if zf(z)/f(z) is in the parabolic region Rew>|w1|. This class is closely related to the class of uniformly convex functions. Sufficient conditions for function to be in Sp are obtained. In particular, we find condition on λ such that the function f(z), satisfying (1α)(f(z)/z)μ+αf(z)(f(z)/z)μ11+λz, is in Sp.
