# Sinc function

From HaskellWiki

The sinc function, , is a useful function that is a little tricky to implement because it becomes as x approaches . Here is an implementation taken from the Boost library.

epsilon :: RealFloat a => a epsilon = encodeFloat 1 (fromIntegral $ 1-floatDigits epsilon) {- Boosted from Boost http://www.boost.org/boost/math/special_functions/sinc.hpp -} sinc :: (RealFloat a) => a -> a sinc x | (abs x) >= taylor_n_bound = (sin x)/x | otherwise = 1 - (x^2/6) + (x^4/120) where taylor_n_bound = sqrt $ sqrt epsilon
