Abstract
New methods are proposed for the numerical evaluation of $f(\A)$ or $f(\A) b$, where $f(\A)$ is a function such as $\sqrt \A$ or $\log (\A)$ with singularities in $(-\infty,0\kern .7pt ]$ and $\A$ is a matrix with eigenvalues on or near $(0,\infty)$. The methods are based on combining contour integrals evaluated by the periodic trapezoid rule with conformal maps involving Jacobi elliptic functions. The convergence is geometric, so that the computation of $f(\A)b$ is typically reduced to one or two dozen linear system solves.
