Hi,

I am developing some code to run on hardware and I am using the sin() and cos() functions inside the standard math.h many times, which slows the program down dramatically. I was wondering if there is a way to "approximate" the sine and cosine of a value (angle is between 0 and 2pi).

Apparently there is a way to do it using look up tables but I don't really know how to create one? I would like to do it using just basic arithmetic operators, no math.h functions. Is there a simple way to compute the sine and cosine of a value?

(I would also like to find out if this is possible for a square root, but for now just sine and cosine)

Thanks for your help!
