Variants of the Schwarz lemma

Originally published at 狗和留美者不得入内. You can comment here or there.

Take some self map on the unit disk \mathbb{D}, f. If f(0) = 0, g(z) = f(z) / z has a removable singularity at 0. On |z| = r, |g(z)| \leq 1 / r, and with the maximum principle on r \to 1, we derive |f(z)| \leq |z| everywhere. In particular, if |f(z)| = |z| anywhere, constancy by the maximum principle tells us that f(z) = \lambda z, where |\lambda| = 1. g with the removable singularity removed has g(0) = f'(0), so again, by the maximum principle, |f'(0)| = 1 means g is a constant of modulus 1. Moreover, if f is not an automorphism, we cannot have |f(z)| = |z| anywhere, so in that case, |f'(0)| < 1.
