Some inequalities for maximum modulus of rational functions

Abdullah Mir


In this paper, we establish some inequalities for rational functions with prescribed poles and restricted zeros in the sup-norm on the unit circle in the complex plane. Generalizations and refinements of rational function inequalities of Govil, Li, Mohapatra and Rodriguez are obtained.
