Abstract: A power series $ f(z)$ which converges in $ \mathbb{D}=\{\vert z\vert<1\}$ maps the radii $ [0,\zeta )$ onto paths $ \Gamma (\zeta )$, $ \zeta \in \mathbb{T}=\partial \mathbb{D}$. These are studied under several aspects in the case of the special lacunary series $ f(z)=z+z^2+z^4+z^8+\ldots \,$. First, the $ \Gamma (\zeta )$ are considered as random functions on the probability space $ (\mathbb{T},\mathscr {B},\mathrm {mes}/2\pi )$, where $ \mathscr {B}$ is the $ \sigma $-algebra of Borel sets and $ \mathrm {mes}$ the Lebesgue measure. Then analytical properties of the $ \Gamma (\zeta )$ are discussed which hold on subsets $ A$ of $ \mathbb{T}$ with Hausdorff dimension 1 in spite of $ \mathrm {mes}{A}=0$. Furthermore, estimates of the derivative of $ f$ and of the arc length of sections of the $ \Gamma (\zeta )$ are given. Finally, these results are used to derive connections between the distribution of critical points of $ f$ and the overall behaviour of the paths.
