### Abstract

Abstract. A method is described for the computation of the Green’s function in the complex plane corresponding to a set of K symmetrically placed polygons along the real axis. An important special case is a set of K real intervals. The method is based on a Schwarz–Christoffel conformal map of the part of the upper half-plane exterior to the problem domain onto a semi-infinite strip whose end contains K − 1 slits. From the Green’s function one can obtain a great deal of information about polynomial approximations, with applications in digital filters and matrix iterations. By making the end of the strip jagged, the method can be generalized to weighted Green’s functions and weighted approximations. Key words.
