Composition operators Cϕ induced by a selfmap ϕ of some set S are operators acting on a space consisting of functions on S by composition to the right with ϕ, that is Cϕf = f ◦ ϕ. In this paper, we consider the Hilbert Hardy space H2 on the open unit disk and find exact formulas for distances kCϕ − Cψk between composition operators. The selfmaps ϕ and ψ involved in those formulas are constant, inner, or analytic selfmaps of the unit disk fixing the origin.
