A criterion associated with the schlicht Bloch constant. (English) Zbl 0764.30018
Some years ago the author discovered a criterion for an extremal domain for the schlicht Bloch constant which eliminates many examples used in estimating it from above from providing extremal functions, for example, that given by R. E. Goodman [Bull. Am. Math. Soc. 51, 234-239 (1945)]. Not long ago the author mentioned this criterion to Hummel and an unsatisfactory vague version of it is quoted in the paper by E. Beller and J. A. Hummel [Complex Variables, Theory Appl. 4, 243- 252 (1985; Zbl 0568.30008)]. This paper provides a complete account.
