A form for the fourth Hankel determinant is given in this paper as
$$H_4 (1)=\begin{vmatrix}
            1 & \mathfrak{a}_2 & \mathfrak{a}_3 & \mathfrak{a}_4 \\
            \mathfrak{a}_2 & \mathfrak{a}_3 & \mathfrak{a}_4 & \mathfrak{a}_5 \\
            \mathfrak{a}_3 & \mathfrak{a}_4 & \mathfrak{a}_5 & \mathfrak{a}_6 \\
            \mathfrak{a}_4 & \mathfrak{a}_5 & \mathfrak{a}_6 & \mathfrak{a}_7 \\
The modern concept of the fourth Hankel determinant is studied for the subclass of analytic functions $\mu \left(\beta ,\lambda ,t\right)$ defined here using the concept of subordination. Bounds on the coefficients $\left|a_n\right|$ with n = 2,3,4, 5,6,7 for the functions in this newly introduced class are given and the upper bound of the fourth Hankel determinant for this class is obtained. Lemmas used by the authors of this paper improve the results from a previously published paper. Interesting particular cases are given in the corollaries of the main theorems.
