N2 - Marx and Strohhäcker showed in 1933 that f(z) / z is subordinate to (Formula presented.) for a normalized convex function f on the unit disk (Formula presented.) In 1973, Brickman, Hallenbeck, MacGregor and Wilken further proved that f(z) / z is subordinate to (Formula presented.) if f is convex of order (Formula presented.) for (Formula presented.) and conjectured that this is true also for (Formula presented.) Here, (Formula presented.) is the standard extremal function in the class of normalized convex functions of order (Formula presented.) and (Formula presented.) We prove the conjecture and study geometric properties of convex functions of order (Formula presented.) In particular, we prove that (Formula presented.) is starlike whenever both f and g are convex of order 3 / 5.
