Let iAj(1jn) be generators of commuting bounded strongly continuous groups, A(A1,A2,,An). We show that, when f has sufficiently many polynomially bounded derivatives, then there exist k,r>0 such that f(A) has a (1+|A|2)r-regularized BCk(f(Rn)) functional calculus. This immediately produces regularized semigroups and cosine functions with an explicit representation; in particular, when f(Rn)R, then, for appropriate k,r, t(1it)keitf(A)(1+|A|2)r is a Fourier-Stieltjes transform, and when f(Rn)[0,), then t(1+t)ketf(A)(1+|A|2)r is a Laplace-Stieltjes transform. With Ai(D1,,Dn),f(A) is a pseudodifferential operator on Lp(Rn)(1p<) or BUC(Rn).
