I would appreciate being pointed to a message in the archives that oulines "the Bygrave formulas".
I try to search for them, and my problem is too many messages rather than too few. There has been quite a lot of discussion of Bygrave on this list.
I have found some formulae, but I have so far felt like I was coming into the middle of a discussion...and having a little trouble getting understanding what has gone before. I find elements in the formulae that are referred to by their standard abbreviation...but I don't know what the symbols refer to.
I am familiar with the sine cosine equations that stand behind the Ageton. I would love to expand my horizons.
Thank you very much,
