Suppose we are given two circles, one inside the other, that are tangent at a point $z_0$. I'm trying to map the region between these circles to the unit disc, and my thought process is the following:
I feel like we can map $z_0$ to $\infty$, but I'm not really sure about this. If it works, then I get a strip in the complex plane, and I know how to handle strips via rotation, translation, logarithm, power, and then I'm in the upper half-plane (if I've thought this through somewhat properly). My problem really lies in what point $z_0$ can go to, because I thought the point symmetric to $z_0$ (which is $z_0$ in this case) had to be mapped to $0$. Is this the right idea, and if what other details should I make sure I have? Thanks!
