On the growth and the zeros of solutions of higher order linear differential equations with meromorphic coefficientsMaamar Andasmas, Benharrat BelaïdiDepartment of Mathematics, Laboratory of Pure and Applied Mathematics, University of Mostaganem (UMAB), Mostaganem, AlgeriaAbstract: We investigate the growth of meromorphic solutions of homogeneous and nonhomogeneous higher order linear differential equations $$ f^{(k)}+\sum_{j=1}^{k1}A_jf^{(j)}+A_0f=0 (k\geqslant 2), $$ $$ f^{(k)}+\sum_{j=1}^{k1}A_jf^{(j)}+A_0f=A_k (k\geqslant 2), $$ where $A_j(z)$ ($j=0,1,\dots,k$) are meromorphic functions with finite order. Under some conditions on the coefficients, we show that all meromorphic solutions $f\not\equiv 0$ of the above equations have an infinite order and infinite lower order. Furthermore, we give some estimates of their hyperorder, exponent and hyperexponent of convergence of distinct zeros. We improve the results due to Kwon; Chen and Yang; Bela\"{i}di; Chen; Shen and Xu. Keywords: linear differential equations; meromorphic functions; order of growth; hyperorder; exponent of convergence of zeros; hyperexponent of convergence of zeros Classification (MSC2000): 34M10; 30D35 Full text of the article: (for faster download, first choose a mirror)
