FastMath :: sin/cos lookup

Math.sin() is slow. Using a lookup table for sin/cos is roughly 50x faster. The loss of accuracy is minimal, maximum error is roughly 0,001. You can probably get away with it.

   public static final float sin(float rad)
   {
      return sin[(int) (rad * radToIndex) & SIN_MASK];
   }

   public static final float cos(float rad)
   {
      return cos[(int) (rad * radToIndex) & SIN_MASK];
   }

   public static final float sinDeg(float deg)
   {
      return sin[(int) (deg * degToIndex) & SIN_MASK];
   }

   public static final float cosDeg(float deg)
   {
      return cos[(int) (deg * degToIndex) & SIN_MASK];
   }

   private static final float   RAD,DEG;
   private static final int     SIN_BITS,SIN_MASK,SIN_COUNT;
   private static final float   radFull,radToIndex;
   private static final float   degFull,degToIndex;
   private static final float[] sin, cos;

   static
   {
      RAD = (float) Math.PI / 180.0f;
      DEG = 180.0f / (float) Math.PI;

      SIN_BITS  = 12;
      SIN_MASK  = ~(-1 << SIN_BITS);
      SIN_COUNT = SIN_MASK + 1;

      radFull    = (float) (Math.PI * 2.0);
      degFull    = (float) (360.0);
      radToIndex = SIN_COUNT / radFull;
      degToIndex = SIN_COUNT / degFull;

      sin = new float[SIN_COUNT];
      cos = new float[SIN_COUNT];

      for (int i = 0; i < SIN_COUNT; i++)
      {
         sin[i] = (float) Math.sin((i + 0.5f) / SIN_COUNT * radFull);
         cos[i] = (float) Math.cos((i + 0.5f) / SIN_COUNT * radFull);
      }
   }
