Abstract: In geometric function theory, conformally invariant extremal problems often have expressions in terms of special functions. Such problems occur, for instance, in the study of change of euclidean and noneuclidean distances under quasiconformal mappings. This fact has led to many new results on special functions. Our goal is to provide a survey of such results.
