Abstract: In the present paper we investigate a class of harmonic univalent functions in the open unit disk U = {z [member of] C : [absolute value of z] <1} under certain conditions involving a differential operator.
It is well known that K [subset] S*, that both are subclasses of the class of univalent functions and have the following analytical representations

To prove the theorem, following Lemma of Miller and Mocanu [7] is needed: Lemma 5.1[7]: Let q(z) be univalent in the unit disk U = {z : [absolute value of z] < 1} and [theta] and [phi] be analytic in a domain [OMEGA] containing q(U) with [phi](w) [not equal to] 0 when w [member of] q(U).
