# Uniqueness of entire functions whose difference polynomials share a polynomial with finite weight

### Abstract

In this paper, we use the concept of weighted sharing of values to investigate the uniqueness results when two difference polynomials of entire functions share a nonzero polynomial with finite weight. Our result improves and extends some recent results due to Sahoo-Karmakar [J. Cont. Math. Anal. 52(2) (2017), 102–110] and that of Li *et al.* [Bull. Malays. Math. Sci. Soc., 39 (2016), 499–515]. Some examples have been exhibited which are relevant to the content of the paper.
