Grunsky's theorem

Grunsky's theorem In mathematics, Grunsky's theorem, due to the German mathematician Helmut Grunsky, is a result in complex analysis concerning holomorphic univalent functions defined on the unit disk in the complex numbers. The theorem states that a univalent function defined on the unit disc, fixing the point 0, maps every disk |z| < r onto a starlike domain for r ≤ tanh π/4. The largest r for which this is true is called the radius of starlikeness of the function. Contents 1 Statement 2 An inequality of Grunsky 2.1 Proof 3 Proof of the theorem 4 References Statement Let f be a univalent holomorphic function on the unit disc D such that f(0) = 0. Then for all r ≤ tanh π/4, the image of the disc |z| < r is starlike with respect to 0, , i.e. it is invariant under multiplication by real numbers in (0,1). An inequality of Grunsky If f(z) is univalent on D with f(0) = 0, then {displaystyle left|log {zf^{prime }(z) over f(z)}right|leq log {1+|z| over 1-|z|}.} Taking the real and imaginary parts of the logarithm, this implies the two inequalities {displaystyle left|{zf^{prime }(z) over f(z)}right|leq {1+|z| over 1-|z|}} and {displaystyle left|arg {zf^{prime }(z) over f(z)}right|leq log {1+|z| over 1-|z|}.} For fixed z, both these equalities are attained by suitable Koebe functions {displaystyle g_{w}(zeta )={zeta over (1-{overline {w}}zeta )^{2}},} where |w| = 1. Proof Grunsky (1932) originally proved these inequalities based on extremal techniques of Ludwig Bieberbach. Subsequent proofs, outlined in Goluzin (1939), relied on the Loewner equation. More elementary proofs were subsequently given based on Goluzin's inequalities, an equivalent form of Grunsky's inequalities (1939) for the Grunsky matrix. For a univalent function g in z > 1 with an expansion {displaystyle g(z)=z+b_{1}z^{-1}+b_{2}z^{-2}+cdots .} Goluzin's inequalities state that {displaystyle left|sum _{i=1}^{n}sum _{j=1}^{n}lambda _{i}lambda _{j}log {g(z_{i})-g(z_{j}) over z_{i}-z_{j}}right|leq sum _{i=1}^{n}sum _{j=1}^{n}lambda _{i}{overline {lambda _{j}}}log {z_{i}{overline {z_{j}}} over z_{i}{overline {z_{j}}}-1},} where the zi are distinct points with |zi| > 1 and λi are arbitrary complex numbers.

Taking n = 2. with λ1 = – λ2 = λ, the inequality implies {displaystyle left|log {g^{prime }(zeta )g^{prime }(eta )(zeta -eta )^{2} over (g(zeta )-g(eta ))^{2}}right|leq log {|1-zeta {overline {eta }}|^{2} over (|zeta |^{2}-1)(|eta |^{2}-1)}.} If g is an odd function and η = – ζ, this yields {displaystyle left|log {zeta g^{prime }(zeta ) over g(zeta )}right|leq {|zeta |^{2}+1 over |zeta |^{2}-1}.} Finally if f is any normalized univalent function in D, the required inequality for f follows by taking {displaystyle g(zeta )=f(zeta ^{-2})^{-{1 over 2}}} with {displaystyle z=zeta ^{-2}.} Proof of the theorem Let f be a univalent function on D with f(0) = 0. By Nevanlinna's criterion, f is starlike on |z| < r if and only if {displaystyle Re {zf^{prime }(z) over f(z)}geq 0} for |z| < r. Equivalently {displaystyle left|arg {zf^{prime }(z) over f(z)}right|leq {pi over 2}.} On the other hand by the inequality of Grunsky above, {displaystyle left|arg {zf^{prime }(z) over f(z)}right|leq log {1+|z| over 1-|z|}.} Thus if {displaystyle log {1+|z| over 1-|z|}leq {pi over 2},} the inequality holds at z. This condition is equivalent to {displaystyle |z|leq tanh {pi over 4}} and hence f is starlike on any disk |z| < r with r ≤ tanh π/4. References Duren, P. L.
