1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If exist a formula for reducion of power for sin and cos:

So, is possible to define a formula of "amplification of power" for sin and cos?

$$\sqrt{\sin(x)} = ?$$$$\sqrt{\cos(x)} = ?$$

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

None attempt well succeful or relevant.

Since $\sqrt{\sin(x)}$ and $\sqrt{\cos(x)}$ do not exist (as real quantities) whenever the sin or cos are < 0, any kind of formula would need to be genuinely weird. If there were formulas at all they would need to have branch cuts in the complex plane.
