Convex harmonic mappings are not necessarily in h 1/2
We construct convex harmonic mappings in the unit disk that do not belong to the harmonic Hardy space h(1/2). This provides a negative answer to a question raised by P. Duren.
Curvature Properties of Planar Harmonic Mappings
A geometric interpretation of the Schwarzian of a harmonic mapping is given in terms of geodesic curvature on the associated minimal surface, generalizing a classical formula for analytic functions.
Harmonic Mappings Related to Janowski Convex Functions of Complex Order b
Let SH be the class of all sense-preserving harmonic mappings in the open unit disc D = {z ∈ C||z| < 1}. In the present paper the authors investigate the properties of the class of harmonic mappings
Recent Results on Harmonic and p-harmonic Mappings
The class of conformal mappings is a natural object in the study of theory of analytic functions. Likewise univalent harmonic mappings (both in the planar and in the higher dimensional case) is
In this paper, we investigate the properties of two classes of planar harmonic map- pings. First, we discuss the equivalent norms on Lipschitz-type spaces of harmonic K-quasiregular mappings and then
Inclusion properties of planar harmonic mappings associated with the Wright function
ABSTRACT The prime purpose of this article aims to establish connections between various sub-classes of harmonic univalent mappings by applying a convolution operator associated with the well-known
In this paper, we investigate some properties of planar harmonic mappings in Hardy spaces. First, we discuss the integral means of harmonic mappings and those of their derivatives, and as a
Let f be a sense-preserving harmonic mapping in the unit disk. We give a sufficient condition in terms of the pre-Schwarzian derivative of f to ensure that it can be extended to a quasiconformal map
Bounded harmonic mappings related to starlike functions
Let f = h(z)+g(z)¯ be a sense-preserving harmonic mapping in the open unit disc D = {z||z| 12′ then f is called bounded harmonic mapping. The main purpose of this paper is to give some properties of
On locally invertible harmonic mappings of plane domains
We prove several global univalence theorems for locally invertible harmonic mappings with certain prescribed boundary behavior in simply and multiply connected domains. In particular, we consider


A variational method for harmonic mappings onto convex regions
Harmonic mappings arise in several areas of analysis and geometry. Our purpose is to present a general variational method for treating extremal problems over families of univalent harmonic functions
Estimates of integral means of harmonic mappings
In this paper we prove that each univalent harmonic mapping of the unit disc onto a given horizontal strip is in h 1 and we find a uniform upper bound for their h 1-norm. We also give some estimates
Harmonic typically real mappings
We give an example of a univalent orientation-preserving harmonic mapping f = h + g¯ defined on the unit disc U which is real on the real axis, satisfies and is not typically real. Furthermore, we
Planar harmonic mappings and curvature estimates
Let $\Sigma$ be the class of all complex-valued, harmonic, orientation-preserving, univalent mappings defined on $\Delta = {z : z > 1}$ that map $\infty$ to $\infty$.
Univalent Harmonic Ring Mappings Vanishing on the Interior Boundary
Abstract We give a characterization of univalent positively oriented harmonic mappings ƒ defined on an exterior neighbourhood of the closed unit disk { z: | z| ≤1} such that .

It is shown that if f is a univalent harmonic mapping of the unit disk onto a domain having a smooth boundary arc which is convex with respect to the domain, and if the dilatation has modulus 1 on
Local decomposition of harmonic mappings
Under certain conditions a two-dimensional harmonic mapping h can be represented nontrivially as h=g-f where f, g are both harmonic. On the basis of the current work, in conjunction with previous
Integral smoothness properties of some harmonic mappings

Boundary correspondence and dilatation of harmonic mappings
If a sense-preserving harmonic mapping has dilatation of unit modulus on some boundary are, then it maps that are onto a concave are unless it is piecewise constant A theorem to this effect is proved
Construction of close-to-convex harmonic polynomials
A family of sense–preserving complex valued harmonic polynomials that are close-to-convex on the open unit disk is introduced. By taking limits as the degree of the polynomials tends to infinity, a
