Abstract: It is shown that the logarithmic spiral gives the extremum to F. John’s angle distortion problem for plane bilipschitz mappings. The problem of factoring spiral-like mappings into a composition of homeomorphisms with smaller isometric distortion is studied. A space counterpart of the Freedman and He theorem is obtained.
