Abstract: We show how local estimates may be obtained for holomorphic functions of a class of linear operators on a finite-dimensional linear vector space. This is accomplished by classifying the spectrum of each operator and then estimating its resolvent on certain contours in the left half-plane. We apply these methods to prove some known theorems, and in addition we obtain new estimates for the inverse of these operators. Analogous results for power-bounded operators are given in [3].
