Abstract

This paper is devoted to studying the growth of solutions of second-order nonhomogeneous linear differential equation with meromorphic coefficients. We also discuss the relationship between small functions and differential polynomials L ( f ) = d 2 f + d 1 f + d 0 f generated by solutions of the above equation, where d 0 ( z ) , d 1 ( z ) , and d 2 ( z ) are entire functions that are not all equal to zero.
