We revisit the problem of approximating a mapping defined for $t>0$ from knowledge of its Laplace transform in appropriate regions of the complex plane.
The goal is to devise a unique quadrature which is accurate and efficient to approximate the inverse Laplace transform in large intervals of the form $(t_0,T)$, with $T$ much larger than $t_0$. In this way, we can obtain a continuous output of the function of interest. Straightforward applications to the time integration of evolution problems will be discussed, together with applications\nto the efficient implementation of convolution quadrature methods.
