Welcome to Sin-Cos Homepage

Sin-Cos! The name is difficult to comprehend and apparently even more difficult to pronounce. It is Sin-Cos, not Sin-Cos as in evil companies, we are all so good, almost angelic. This of course is our own opinion. Visit us and judge for yourself!

The name Sin-Cos, as in the mathematical Sin-Cos-Tan, and was given to us in 1982 by way of a joke in that we were totally different. If everyone went round in a circle, only we went off at a tangent. And it is true.

We continue to explore and are still finding more and more tangents needing to be investigated. Listed below are the current tangents that we have investigated and that we keep operational. If your particular interest is not here, let us know. It may well be a tangent that we are keen to explore next.
