There are other maps which preserve angles, but are not bijective?

comment Define cosine naturally
Indeed, I prefer axioms that are likely to match real-world cases. I think commutativity, associativity, invertibility (division) are a good fit. My thought was to continue this line and use the Frobensius theorem to circle in on complex number and their multiplication property. The main ingredient here is their cyclicality which isn't too abstract and is also likely to occur in natural processes. My exp() notation is just a sketch. I basically mean defining the multiplication of complex numbers.

comment Define cosine naturally
I'd like to collect some axioms which are likely to occur in the real world and which single out the a "cyclic addition algebra" like $\exp(i\theta)$. Not sure what the correct term is. Next I assume this "real-world case" also happens to have a structure like the distributive law. This way I want to introduce cosine.

comment Distance function to define finite ratio of hypercube volume
It still should be a maximal object inscribed in a unit cube. So scaling wouldn't do here. It should be something that extends into the corners more than a sphere.
