As usual, to get a convex or convex-concave solution of [P.sub.[lambda](0,b)], we use the shooting technique which consists of finding the values of a parameter [subset] [greater than or equal to] 0 for which the solution of (1) satisfying the initial conditions f(0) = a, f'(0) = b, and f"(0) = [subset] exists on [0, +[infinity]) and is such that f'(t) [right arrow] [lambda] as t [right arrow] +[infinity].
If h and g are analytic in E, h is convex in E and if f = h + [bar.g] is locally univalent in E, then the function f = h + [bar.g] is locally one-to-one, sense-preserving, and close-to-convex harmonic in E.
