36 AWG is 0.005"
0000 AWG is 0.46" (treat 0000 as -3 below)

Thus 39 gauges result in a change of 92X, and the follow a power law.

diameter = 0.005" * 92^((i - 36)/39)

where i is the wire gauge, and "^" is raise to the power of. It may be expressed in metric by recognizing that 0.005" = 0.127 mm above.
