Abstract
Let $f$ be an analytic function in the disk $\mathbb{D}_R=\{z\in \mathbb{C}\colon |z|\le R\}$, $R\in (0,+\infty]$. A point $w\in\mathbb{D}_R$ is called a maximum modulus point of $f$ if $|f(w)|=M(|w|,f)$, where $M(r,f)=\max\{|f(z)|\colon |z|=r\}$. Denote by $d(w, f)$ the distance between a maximum modulus point $w$ and the zero set of $f$, i.e., $d(w,f)=\inf\{|w-z|\colon f(z)=0\}$. Let $\Phi$ be a continuous function on $[a,\ln R)$ such that $x\sigma-\Phi(\sigma)\to-\infty$, $\sigma\uparrow \ln R$, for every $x\in\mathbb{R}$. Let also $\widetilde{\Phi}$ be the Young-conjugate function of $\Phi$ and $\overline{\Phi}(x)=\widetilde{\Phi}(x)/x$ for all sufficiently large $x$. We prove that if $$\ln M(r,f)\le (1+o(1))\Phi(\ln r),\quad r\uparrow R,$$ then $$\varliminf_{|w|\uparrow R}d(w,f)\frac{\overline{\Phi}\,^{-1}(\ln |w|)}{|w|}\ge C_0,$$ where $C_0=0,5416\dots$. When the Taylor coefficients of $f$ are nonnegative, the constant $C_0$ can be replaced by $\pi$, and the inequality obtained in this case is sharp.
