The function

where . This function was first studied by P. Koebe [1]. The Koebe function maps the disc onto the -plane with a slit along the ray starting at the point , its extension containing the point . The Koebe function is an extremal function in a number of problems in the theory of univalent functions (cf. Bieberbach conjecture; Univalent function).
