Fibonacci Number

month from the second month on. The puzzle that Fibonacci posed was how many pairs will there be in one year? When attempting to solve this problem, a pattern is detected: Figure 1: Recognizing the pattern of the "rabbit problem". If we were to keep going month by month, the sequence formed would be 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21 and so on. From here we notice that each new term is the sum of the previous two terms. The set of numbers is defined as the Fibonacci sequence. Mathematically speaking, this sequence...

Fibonacci Numbers, The Golden Ratio, And Their Effect On Phyllotaxis In Nature

Molly Irvin Kouba Math 16A Exam ID #16 Do Plants Understand Math?: Fibonacci Numbers, The Golden Ratio, and Their Effect on Phyllotaxis in Nature The Fibonacci sequence, Lucas Numbers, and the Golden Ratio are commonly found in nature as patterns that many plants and animals follow for optimal growth and development. They explain many phenomena such as whorled phyllotaxis in plants or human proportions as well as many weather patterns and possibly other occurrences. As a plant sciences major,...

The Fibonacci Sequence

 The Fibonacci sequence The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers developed by Leonardo Fibonacci as a means of solving a practical problem. The original problem that Fibonacci investigated, in the year 1202, was about how fast rabbits could breed in ideal circumstances. Suppose a newly born pair of rabbits, one male, one female, are put in a field. Rabbits are able to mate at the age of one month so that at the end of its second month a female can produce another pair of rabbits. Suppose...

generally increases more than usual, making it much more difficult for traders to continue driving the price higher or lower. Round Numbers Another common characteristic of support/resistance is that an asset's price may have a difficult time moving beyond a round price level such as $50. Most inexperienced traders tend to buy/sell assets when the price is at a whole number because they are more likely to feel that a stock is fairly valued at such levels. Most target prices/stop orders set by either...

Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Series

Introduction: The Fibonacci Series The Fibonacci Series is a sequence of numbers first created by Leonardo Fibonacci (fibo-na-chee) in 1202. It is a deceptively simple series, but its ramifications and applications are nearly limitless. It has fascinated and perplexed mathematicians for over 700 years, and nearly everyone who has worked with it has added a new piece to the Fibonacci puzzle, a new tidbit of information about the series and how it works. Fibonacci mathematics is a constantly...

efficiency class. If you cannot do it, try to prove that, in fact, it cannot be done. Answer: ∑ 2 = n (n + 1) (2n + 1) 6 3. Consider the following algorithm. Algorithm Secret(A[0..n − 1]) //Input: An array A[0..n − 1] of n real numbers minval ← A[0]; maxval ← A[0] for i ← 1 to n − 1 do if A[i] < minval minval ← A[i] if A[i] > maxval maxval ← A[i] return maxval − minval Answer questions a to e of Problem 2 about this algorithm. Answer: a) Comparison the range b) Comparison...

Essay 2

frame you would like to grab and choose “video” then “snapshot.” The final version of the essay is due on March 1, at 10am in the Catalyst Drop Box. Guidelines: 1. The key to success is detailed observation. Take your time to watch the sequence a number of times. Choose your shots carefully to support an argument. Look carefully at the screen grabs to discern elements of the mise-en-scene (such as shooting angle, color scheme, composition balance, and more). List to yourself the basic information...

Math and Music

different ways. Music theorists often use mathematics to understand music, and although music is evidently abstract in modern mathematics, mathematics is “the basis of sound” and sound itself “in its musical aspects exhibits a remarkable array of number properties.” The average person lacking in great knowledge of math and musical theories would not categorize mathematics with music. In actuality, math and music are related, and we use this to describe and teach and learn music without even knowing...

Golden Ratio

The Golden Ratio The theory of the Italian mathematician Leonardo Pisano is extremely present today. While he was trying to sort out the number of rabbits that mated in a year, he discovered a series of numbers, that are profoundly consistent in man, nature & animals. This discovery was extraordinary, but he also found that the ratio always resulted in 1.618. Although it is called differently, this ratio is often called „the golden ratio“...
