Abstract: Two-point distortion theorems are obtained for affine and linearly invariant families of harmonic mappings on the unit disk, with generalizations to pluriharmonic mappings of the unit ball in $ {\mathbb{C}}^{n}$. In particular, necessary and sufficient conditions are given for a locally univalent harmonic or pluriharmonic mapping to be univalent. Some particular subclasses are also considered.
