What is Fibonacci series?

The development of the Fibonacci sequence "is attributed in part to Pingala (200 BC), later being associated with Virahanka (c. 700 AD), GopÄ?la (c. 1135), and Hemachandra (c. 1150)".Parmanand Singh cites Pingala's cryptic formula misrau cha ("the two are mixed") and cites scholars who interpret it in context as saying that the cases for m beats (Fm+1) is obtained by adding a [S] to Fm cases and [L] to the Fmâ??1 cases. He dates Pingala before 450 BC. However, the clearest exposition of the sequence arises in the work of Virahanka (c. 700 AD), whose own work is lost, but is available in a quotation by Gopala (c. 1135): Variations of two earlier meters [is the variation]... For example, for [a meter of length] four, variations of meters of two [and] three being mixed, five happens. [works out examples 8, 13, 21]... In this way, the process should be followed in all mÄ?trÄ?-vá¹?ttas [prosodic combinations]. The sequence is also discussed by Gopala (before 1135 AD) and by the Jain scholar Hemachandra (c. 1150). Outside India, the Fibonacci sequence first appears in the book Liber Abaci (1202) by Fibonacci. Fibonacci considers the growth of an idealized (biologically unrealistic) rabbit population, assuming that: 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; rabbits never die and a mating pair always produces one new pair (one male, one female) every month from the second month on. The puzzle that Fibonacci posed was: how many pairs will there be in one year? At the end of the first month, they mate, but there is still only 1 pair. At the end of the second month the female produces a new pair, so now there are 2 pairs of rabbits in the field. At the end of the third month, the original female produces a second pair, making 3 pairs in all in the field. At the end of the fourth month, the original female has produced yet another new pair, and the female born two months ago also produces her first pair, making 5 pairs. At the end of the nth month, the number of pairs of rabbits is equal to the number of new pairs (which is the number of pairs in month n â?? 2) plus the number of pairs alive last month (n â?? 1). This is the nth Fibonacci number. The name "Fibonacci sequence" was first used by the 19th-century number theorist Ã?douard Lucas. The Fibonacci sequence is named after Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa, known as Fibonacci. His 1202 book Liber Abaci introduced the sequence to Western European mathematics, although the sequence had been described earlier as Virahanka numbers in Indian mathematics. The sequence described in Liber Abaci began with F1 = 1. read less

Fibonacci series is the series of numbers where addition of first and second number gives third number. For Example: 1,1(add this=2) now (add 1,2=3). So the series generates like 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, etc.

Trainer

Fibonacci series is the series of numbers, in which the next number is found by adding the two numbers before it. Eg: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34,..., etc.
