Abstract. Quasiconformal maps in the complex plane are homeomorphisms that satisfy certain geometric distortion inequalities; infinitesimally, they map circles to ellipses with bounded eccentricity. The local distortion properties of these maps give rise to a certain degree of global regularity and Hölder continuity. In this paper, we give improved lower bounds for the Hölder continuity of these maps; the analysis is based on combining the isoperimetric inequality with a study of the length of quasicircles. Furthermore, the extremizers for Hölder continuity are characterized, and some applications are given to solutions to elliptic partial differential equations.
