    Re: Yet another 4-place Nat-Haversine Table project?
    From: Tony Oz
    Date: 2018 Dec 9, 01:58 -0800

    As a follow-up:

    The only clean way to represent hv(θ) for θ>90° is to express it as 1 - hv(180° - θ). So the table would span from 0° to 90° with some intricate way of labeling columns. The 0 ° ≤ θ ≤ 90° values should be given with a sort of "bar-notation" and, say, four-places rounding.

    If I find a way to automate this "bar-notation" with OOCalc - I'll surely make such a table.

    Any hints on such automation?

     Regards,

    Tony

    PS

    I'm still not convinced in usefulness of such complication!
