Rational $L_{\infty}$ approximations to the matrix cosine

I. Famelis, C. Tsitouras and V. Katsikis

In applications, many processes are described by second order differential equations and the exact solution for these equations is given in terms of the matrix functions sine and cosine. Among the most competitive algorithms for computing these functions are Padé approximations [1]. Here we focus on two classes of matrices, positive and Hermitian. We present intervals of applications for rational $L_{\infty}$ approximations of various degrees and tolerances for these types of matrices in the lines of [2].
