Go to 
http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/toolbox/map/map.html
and scroll down the left frame until you find "Projections Reference" 
and clicj it for a comprehensive list.

Mathworks seems to provide a toolbox for MathLab that can do all this 
remappings. Play with it if you are interested. The image slicer 
plugin from philo can do a sinusoidal remapping, albeit only with 3 
slices in the compiled version. Max be the Filter Factory source can 
be modified:

Could well be Flexify can do such remappings - I never tried it.

I don't think it's a good idea to include such remappings in 
PTStitcher (it is pano12 anyway that would need to be extended). 
There are more urgent problems that need to be solved...
