## Abstract

We show that for any transcendental meromorphic function *f* there is a point *z* in the Julia set of *f* such that the iterates *f ^{n}(z)* escape, that is, tend to

*∞*, arbitrarily slowly. The proof uses new covering results for analytic functions. We also introduce several slow escaping sets, in each of which

*f*tends to

^{n}(z)*∞*at a bounded rate, and establish the connections between these sets and the Julia set of

*f*. To do this, we show that the iterates of

*f*satisfy a strong distortion estimate in all types of escaping Fatou components except one, which we call a quasi-nested wandering domain. We give examples to show how varied the structures of these slow escaping sets can be.
