In this work we introduce a new method to compute the matrix cosine. It is based on recent new matrix polynomial evaluation methods for the Taylor approximation and forward and backward error analysis. The matrix polynomial evaluation methods allow to evaluate the Taylor polynomial approximation of the cosine function more efficiently than using Paterson-Stockmeyer method. A MATLAB implementation of the new algorithm is provided, giving better efficiency and accuracy than state-of-the-art algorithms.
