    Where does this problem comes from?
    Are you sure it's not just, sinus? Because in Italian language they use seno(=sinus), shortened as 'sen'.

    Thank you Siron, I'll bet your exactly right. Its a work related formula I found on the internet and after some further language research looks to be either French or Czech?

    sure it's not a typo and they really meant "sin"? never heard of the "sen" function

    I'm not sure about it, that's what I think. Maybe you should wait till someone else gives a confirmation or has another opinion about it.

    "Sen" is the standard abbreviation for "seno" in Spanish and means the sine function.
