Abstract: Let $ \mathfrak{F}_\alpha ^\lambda $ be the class of functions $ f(z) = z + {a_2}{z^2} + \cdots $ which are regular in $ E = \{ z/\vert z\vert < 1\} $ and satisfy

$\displaystyle \operatorname{Re} \{ {e^{i\alpha }}(1 + zf''(z)/f'(z))\} > \lambda \cos \alpha $

for some $ \alpha ,\vert\alpha \vert < \pi /2$, and for some $ \lambda ,0 \leq \lambda < 1$. The author finds a range on $ \alpha $ for which $ f(z)$ in $ \mathfrak{F}_\alpha ^\lambda $ is univalent in $ E$. In particular, the author improves upon the range on a for which $ f(z) \in \mathfrak{F}_\alpha ^0$ is known to be univalent in $ E$. Also a corresponding result is obtained for those functions $ f(z)$ in $ \mathfrak{F}_\alpha ^\lambda $ for which $ f''(0) = 0$.
