Abstract: We study the one-to-one analytic maps $\sigma $ that send the unit disc into a region $G$ with the property that $\lambda G\subset G$ for some complex number $\lambda $, $0<|\lambda |<1$. These functions arise in iteration theory, giving a model for the self-maps of the unit disk into itself, and in the study of composition operators as their eigenfunctions. We show that for such functions there are geometrical conditions on the image region $G$ that characterize their rate of growth, i.e. we prove that $\sigma \in\bigcap _{p<\infty }H^p$ if and only if $G$ does not contain a twisted sector. Then, we examine the connection with composition operators, and further investigate the no twisted sector condition. Finally, in the Appendix, we give a different proof of a result of J. Shapiro about the essential norm of a composition operator.
