** Resumen:** Let

*ϕ*be an analytic map taking the unit disc into itself. Then

*ϕ*determines a family of positive measures

*τ*supported on the unit circle and defined by the Poisson integral Re (

_{α}*α+*

*ϕ*

*(z)) / (α-*

*ϕ*

*(z))*= ∫

*P*for every

_{z}dτ_{α }*α*on the unit circle. These measures were introduced by D.N. Clark (1972) in a spectral-theoretic context and many of their deep function-theoretic properties were later established by A.B. Aleksandrov (1987).

We start by examining basic function-theoretic properties of the family *τ _{α}*; in particular, the correspondence between the atoms of

*τ*and the angular derivatives of

_{α}*ϕ*. We also discuss Aleksandrov's disintegration formula for the Lebesgue measure.

The Aleksandrov-Clark measures induce a natural integral operator for functions defined on the unit circle. This operator, often called the Aleksandrov operator, has very nice properties as it preserves many important function spaces. It also turns out to have an intimate connection to the composition operator *f → f ◦ **ϕ* induced by *ϕ*. This makes it possible to explain the operator-theoretic properties of composition operators in terms of the Aleksandrov-Clark measures.
