In this talk we will give an overview of the theory of slice monogenic functions and of their functional calculi. The first functional calculus we presents is the so called S-functional calculus which works for n-tuples of bounded, but also for unbounded, not necessarily commuting operators. The S-functional calculus is based on the notion S-spectrum, which naturally arises from the definition of the S-resolvent operator for n-tuples of operators. The S-resolvent operator plays the same role that the usual resolvent operator plays for the Riesz-Dunford functional calculus. In the case one considers commuting operators (bounded or unbounded) there is the possibility to simplify the computation of the S-spectrum. In fact, we can use the so-called F-spectrum, which, in this case, equals the S-spectrum. The main good property of the F-spectrum, is that it is easier to compute than the S-spectrum. In case of commuting operators the S-functional calculus, based on the F-spectrum, will be called SC-functional calculus. The F-spectrum is related to the F-functional calculus which is based on the integral version of the Fueter mapping theorem.
