Did anyone ever introduce an "oscillating unity"?

I wonder whether anyone ever tried to introduce an extension of real numbers by adding an element $\nu$ which would signify the behavior of the function $(-1)^x$ as $x$ goes to infinity? In other ...

What are the consequences if we could express tangent via logarithm in an algebraic system? [closed]

Working on an algebra of divergent integrals I came to the following relation: If $\tau=\int_0^\infty dx$ then $$\ln (\tau+a)=\int_{0}^\infty \psi'(x+1/2+a)dx$$ and this directly gives the following ...
