Abstract: Let S denote the set of functions $ f(z)$ analytic and univalent in $ \vert z\vert\, < \,1$, normalized by $ f(0)\, = \,0$ and $ f'(0)\, = \,1$. A function f is a support point of S if there exists a continuous linear functional L, nonconstant on S, for which f maximizes Re $ \operatorname{Re} \,L(g)$, $ g \in S$. The support points corresponding to the point-evaluation functionals are determined explicitly and are shown to also be extreme points of S. New geometric properties of their omitte $ \operatorname {arcs}\,\Gamma $ are found. In particular, it is shown that for each such support point $ \Gamma $ lies entirely in a certain half-strip, $ \Gamma $ has monotonic argument, and the angle between radius and tangent vectors increases from zero at infinity to a finite maximum value at the tip of the $ \operatorname{arc}\,\Gamma $. Numerical calculations appear to indicate that the known bound $ \pi /4$ for the angle between radius and tangent vectors is actually best possible.
