Mathematics Colloquium

Science B
Jack Butler, poet and mathematical enthusiast presents "Parafibs," a presentation on the Fibonacci Sequence and the Golden Mean.

The so-called Fibonacci Sequence is only one of an infinite family of sequences in which the ratio of the penultimate term to the ultimate term (a ratio I refer to in this paper as rs) converges to the Golden Mean as the ultimate term approaches infinity.

It does not matter which two numbers are used as “seed” numbers to begin the sequence. The sequence's ratio of penultimate to ultimate term will converge to the Golden Mean as the ultimate term approaches infinity.

It is therefore the number of “seed” terms (in this case, 2) which determines the Golden Mean as the ratio rs, not the values of the numbers used as seed terms.
This raises the question of what happens when the number of seed terms (which I refer to in this paper as s) is a positive integer not equal to 2.

It develops that there is an infinite set of families of sequences similar to the Fibonacci family, each family converging to its own unique ratio of penultimate to ultimate term (its own unique rs, in other words); that it is the seed number, s, which determines this unique ratio, rs, for each family, rather than the values of the seed numbers themselves; that the Fibonacci sequences, properly understood, are only one element of that infinite set; and that the ratio rs converges to the limit .5 as s approaches infinity.

Please join us for the Pre-Colloquium Tea on the third floor of the BSS building at 3:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
