Abstract: We show that Teichmüller's classical lower bound for the capacity of a ring domain, obtained by circular symmetrization, can be replaced by an explicit one which is almost always better. The proof is based on a duplication formula for the solution of an associated extremal problem. Some inequalities are obtained for conformal invariants.
