  • In the present paper, we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the elementary function $ q_{\alpha,\beta}(t)=\frac{e^{-\alpha t}-e^{-\beta t}}{1-e^{-t}},$ if $t\ne 0$ or $q_{\alpha,\beta}(t)=\beta-\alpha,$ if $t=0$ to be monotonic or logarithmically convex on $(-\infty,\infty)$, $(-\infty,0)$ or $(0,\infty)$ respectively, where $\alpha$ and $\beta$ are real numbers and satisfy $\alpha\ne\beta$ and $(\alpha,\beta)$ ∉ {$(0,1),(1,0)$}. Utilizing the monotonicity of $q_{\alpha,\beta}(t)$ on $(0,\infty)$, we derive necessary and sufficient conditions for the function $H_{a,b;c}(x)=(x+c)^{b-a} \frac{\Gamma(x+a)}{\Gamma(x+b)}$, its $q$-analogue, and ratios of the gamma or $q$-gamma functions to be logarithmically completely monotonic, where $a,b,c$ are real numbers and $x\in (-\min$ {$a,b,c$},$\infty)$.
