for the profiler output. atan2 is taking 50% of the time of this method. Not here I don't need that much precision on the result - say +- O(2*pi/100).


Can't you use a Taylor expansion of arctan?

In a word, NO. Taylor's series are TERRIBLE ways to do numerical

at the expense of everything else. You want an approximation which
is valid over an interval.
