Abstract: Let G be a simply-connected domain in the t—plane (t = x + iy), bounded by the three straight lines x = 0, y = 0, x =1 and a Jordan arc with cartesian equation y = τ (X). Also, let g be the function which maps conformally a rectangle R onto G, so that the four corners of R are mapped onto those of G. In this paper we show that the method con-sidered recently by Challis and Burley [2], for determining approx- imations to g, is equivalent to a special case of the well-known method of Garrick [8] for the mapping of doubly-connected domains, Hence, by using results already available in the literature, we provide some theoretical justification for the method of [2].
