Based on the quasiconformal theory of the universal Teichmüller space, we introduce the Teichmüller space of diffeomorphisms of the unit circle with α-Hölder continuous derivatives as a subspace of the universal Teichmüller space. We characterize such a diffeomorphism quantitatively in terms of the complex dilatation of its quasiconformal extension and the Schwarzian derivative given by the Bers embedding. Then, we provide a complex Banach manifold structure for it and prove that its topology coincides with the one induced by local C1+α-topology at the base point.
