--- Comment #16 from Jacob Lifshay <programmerjake at gmail.com> ---
found a pair of algorithms that look like they'd be quite useful for
implementing trig/log/exp/hypot/hyperbolics/sqrt/rsqrt/divide:


they are shift-add algorithms, so should be rather simple to implement.

they use a redundant number representation, so avoid needing full carry chains
before the last stage, allowing a reduction in power and area used.
