I had recently posted an enquiry about reducing expressions to modulo 2*Pi
i.e. find the angles in the appropriate quadrants.
I got some very useful tips from Jerry B. Keiper (keiper at and
Daniel Lichtblau (danl at  I am posting their solutions here.

For an arbitrary theta,



Arg[Cos[theta] + I*Sin[theta]]

will do the needful.

I thank Jerry and Dan'l for their time and interest.
