I'm not quite sure if I understand you correctly, what do you exactly
mean with 'continuity zones' (the plural). One for each function, or several
for one function ?

What is the advatage of sinc_a(x) ? To address rounding problems for very
large x ? Then it would be more important to improve sin(x) for very large
Someone writing sources for octonions had to be a french person.
