Some results on uniqueness of entire functions concerning difference polynominals

Pulak Sahoo, Gurudas Biswas


In the paper we use the notion of weakly weighted sharing and relaxed weighted sharing to investigate the uniqueness problems when two difference products of entire functions share a small function. The results of the paper improve and extend some recent results due to the present first author [Commu. Math. Stat., 3 (2015), 227-238].


Uniqueness, entire function, small function, difference polynomial.
