then you could have a smaller more detailed lookup table if theta only falls in a specific range.

I would scale things up by 1000

weightA=(Lu-Tu*tan(theta))/((Tf-Tu)*tan(theta)-Lf+Lu);weightB=1-weightA;

As such, this brings up another question . . . so I have tan(theta), but I assume theta must be in radians for it to calculate properly, and the solution will also be in radians, right? Doesn't this force me to use floating point? tan(1.5) != tan(1500)

Doesn't this force me to use floating point? tan(1.5) != tan(1500)No - you just prescale the 1.5 to an integer value. If you are using radians instead of degrees, your range is 0 to 6.28 radians, so you could multiply the radians by 100 to create 628 table entries. Or you could note that there is redundant information in the table for 0 to 157, 158 to 314, 315 to 472, and 473 to 627, and set up the calculation based on your quadrant

Use a lookup table. They (if done properly) end up in FLASH, and you've got 256 KB of the stuff.
