Let denote the class of functions that are harmonic univalent and sense-preserv- ing in the unit disk , where . In this paper, we introduce the class of functions which are harmonic in . A sufficient coefficient of this class is determined. It is shown that this coefficient bound is also necessary for the class if , where and . Coefficient conditions, such as distortion bounds, convolution conditions, convex combination, extreme points, and neighborhood for the class , are obtained.
