A Computer Algorithm from DeMoivre's Theorem
Mathematics and Computer Education Volume 16, Number 2, ISSN 0730-8639
Details are given of a simple computer program written in BASIC which calculates the sine of an angle through an application of DeMoivre's Theorem. The program is included in the material, and the program's success is discussed in terms of why the approximation works. (MP)
