Description: This note is an invitation to the theory of geometric functions. The foundation techniques and some of the developments in the field are explained with the mindset that the audience is principally young researchers wishing to understand some basics. It begins with the basic terminologies and concepts, then a mention of some subjects of inquiry in univalent functions theory. Some of the most basic subfamilies of the family of univalent functions are mentioned. Main emphasy is on the important class of Caratheodory functions and their relations with the various classes of functions, especially the techniques for establishing results in those other classes when compared with the underlying Caratheodory functions. This is contained in Section 4. Examples based on this technique are given in the last section. Since the target audience is the uninitiated, the difficult proofs are not presented. The elementary proofs are explained in the simplest terms. Footnotes are made to further explain some not-immediately obvious points. The references are mostly standard texts.
