Abstract: Let be a Teichmüller self-mapping of the unit disk corresponding to a holomorphic quadratic differential . If satisfies the growth condition (as ), for any given , then is extremal, and for any given , there exists a subsequence of such that

is a Hamilton sequence. In addition, it is shown that there exists with bounded Bers norm such that the corresponding Teichmüller mapping is not extremal, which gives a negative answer to a conjecture by Huang in 1995.
