- ‘The optical path difference is directly proportional to the cosine of the angle of refraction through the coating.’
- ‘In fact, it corresponds to the graph of a function called the hyperbolic cosine.’
- ‘Similar questions are investigated for the sine transforms rather than the cosine transforms.’
- ‘If the two angles are the same we get the sines and cosines of double the angle.’
- ‘I can remember roughly how to differentiate a standard xy formula but sines, cosines and tangents are a mystery.’
