The paper concerns numerical algorithms for solving the Beltrami equation f (z) over bar (z) = mu( z) fz( z) for a compactly supported mu. First, we study an e. cient algorithm that has been proposed in [ P. Daripa, J. Comput. Phys., 106 ( 1993), pp. 355 - 365] and [ P. Daripa and D. Mashat, Numer. Algorithms, 18 ( 1998), pp. 133 - 157] and present its rigorous justi. cation. We then propose a different scheme for solving the Beltrami equation which has a comparable speed and accuracy, but has the virtue of easier implementation by avoiding the use of the Hilbert transform. The present paper can also be viewed as a prologue to one important application of the Beltrami equation: it provides a detailed description of the algorithm that has been used in [ D. Gaidashev, Nonlinearity, 20 ( 1998), pp. 713 - 741] and [ D. Gaidashev and M. Yampolsky, Experiment. Math., 16 ( 2007), pp. 215 - 226] to address an important issue in complex dynamics - conjectural universality for Siegel disks.
