Inequalities concerning polar derivative of polynomials

Arty Ahuja, K. K. Dewan, Sunil Hans


In this paper we obtain certain results for the polar derivative of a polynomial \(p(z) = c_nz^n +\sum_{j=\mu}^n c_{n-j}z^{n-j}\), \(1\leq\mu\leq n\), having all its zeros on \(|z| = k\), \(k\leq 1\), which generalizes the results due to Dewan and Mir, Dewan and Hans. We also obtain certain new inequalities concerning the maximum modulus of a polynomial with restricted zeros.
