Abstract [en]

The classical estimate of Bieberbach that vertical bar a(2)vertical bar <= 2 for a given univalent function phi(z) = z + a(2)z(2) +... in the class S leads to the best possible pointwise estimates of the ratio phi''(z)/phi'(z) for phi is an element of S, first obtained by K oe be and Bieberbach. For the corresponding class E of univalent functions in the exterior disk, Goluzin found in 1943 by variational methods the corresponding best possible pointwise estimates of psi(z)/psi'(z) for psi is an element of Sigma. It was perhaps surprising that this time, the expressions involve elliptic integrals. Here, we obtain an area-type theorem which has Goluzin's pointwise estimate as a corollary. This shows that Goluzin's estimate, like the K oe be-Bieberbach estimate, is firmly rooted in area-based methods. The appearance of elliptic integrals finds a natural explanation: they arise because a certain associated covering surface of the Riemann sphere is a torus.
