Question About MD5 Hash

Hi, I am currently writing a mathematical paper involving the usage of mathematics for hashing. As a result, I have decided to focus on the MD5 hash. After conducting research, I came to learn that the MD5 hash utilized the mathematical sinusoidal function of abs(sin(i + 1)) × 2^32 to determine rotations for the buffer. As a result, I was wondering how this function of abs(sin(i + 1)) × 2^32 was chosen, the math behind this specific function, it’s true purpose. Links to articles or papers would be greatly appreciated as I have been unable to find any.

I apologize if this is the incorrect subreddit to post to or if I didn’t follow any rules. Thank you!
