```I didn't found some thing special!
but it seems not to be a complex :-)
I the fallowing calculation to find the deviation out:

result = (50.0 * (1.0 + sin((z / 23.0 - (z / 23)) * 360.0 * pi /
180.0))).to_f.round(3)
slope = ((50.0 * (1.0 + sin(((z+1) / 23.0 - ((z+1) / 23)) * 360.0 * pi /
180.0)))-phys/1).to_f.round(3)
