Abstract: Let $ f$ and $ g$ (not conformal automorphisms of the unit disk) be analytic mappings of the unit disk into itself. We say $ f$ and $ g$ commute if $ f \circ g = g \circ f$. This paper characterizes those functions $ g$ that commute with a given function $ f$. Several corollaries of this characterization give qualitative information about $ g$ given similar information about $ f$, and examples are given in each case to show the limitations of the conclusions. Some of the qualitative properties considered are univalence, fixed point sets, and whether two such $ g$ must commute with each other.
