Implementing numerically stable and accurate transcendental functions is rather difficult. If you're going down that road, please don't just use Taylor series, but look up good algorithms that others have implemented. One source is http://developer.intel.com/technology/itj/q41999/pdf/transen...

That said, I don't see much value in re-implementing math libraries in Arc, given that Arc is almost certainly going to be running on a platform that already has good native math libraries.
