Weakly quasisymmetric maps of a connected doubling space are quasisymmetric

I'm currently reading through a few chapters of Juha Heinonen's Lectures on Analysis on Metric Spaces, and I'm having some trouble understanding the finer points of a particular proof. The result is ...

Locally quasiconformal implies quasiconformal

In Ahlfors' "Lectures on Quasiconformal Mappings," he shows that, using the geometric definition of K-quasiconformal, if a map between regions is locally K-quasiconformal then it is globally ...

Quasiconformal mappings: Metric deffinition

In the lectures notes http://users.jyu.fi/~pkoskela/quasifinal.pdf (Prof. Koskela has made them freely available from his webpage, so I am guessing is OK that I paste the link here) Quasiconformality ...

Quasiconformal Mappings in Fluid Dynamics

I know that conformal mappings can be used to study 2 dimensional fluid flows. But I was wondering how quasiconformal mapping have been applied in this respect?

Electromagnetic Wave Propagation as Nonlinear Transform

This Wikipedia page says that the electromagnetic wave propagation in air can be done by Freshnel transform: $$U_{0}(x,y) = - \frac{j}{\lambda} \frac{e^{jkz}}{z} \int\limits_{-\infty}^{\infty} ...

“Angle-preserving” equivalent to conformal?

I'd like to investigate the common turn of phrase that conflates "angle-preserving map" with "conformal map". Let $f:\Bbb R^2\to\Bbb R^2$ be a continuous function. I'll define $f$ to be ...

Analytical form of conformal mapping of simple closed curve

I want to create a mapping to map a simple closed curve to a unit disk, in analytic forms. The curve is simple enough, with several segments: each with an analytical form, but no general analytical ...

Existence of certain analytic functions

Let $D_1,D_2\subset\mathbb{C}$ be two disjoint disks. Is there an analytic function defined on the upper half plane $f:\mathbb{H}\rightarrow\mathbb{C}$ such that $f$ takes each value in $D_1$ exactly ...

comformal surface parameterization of simply-connected Riemann surface with boundary

$M$ and $S$ are two simply-connected surfaces with boundaries $\partial M =\partial S \neq \emptyset$, respectively. Both $M$ and $S$ are disk-like and smooth enough. Here, we assume $M$ is planar ...

Quasiconformal map between the complex plane and a disk

According to the Poincaré-Koebe theorem, it is known that the unit disk $\mathbb D$ and the complex plane $\mathbb C$ aren't conformally equivalent. My question is maybe naive, but I was wondering if ...

Lift of a homeomorphism $f$ between two (hyperbolic) surfaces $X,Y$

Let $X,Y$ be two hyperbolic Riemann surfaces (i.e. they have universal cover the upper half plane $\mathbb{H}$). Let $\pi_X:\mathbb{H}\to X, \pi_Y:\mathbb{H}\to Y $ be the corresponding covering maps. ...

quasiconformal “automorphism” groups of julia sets

To motivate this question, let me begin with a picture: Each letter labels a "blob" of this quartic julia set. (is there a technical term for these parts?). Because of resolution limitations I ...
