|Rashomon (K. Wiedman)|
|The Fibonacci Series and the Golden Mean are intimately connected. The Fibonacci Series is a series of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two previous numbers... The ratio of each term to the previous term in the Fibonacci Series is equal to the Golden Mean. At higher numerical values, the Fibonacci Series more and more closely approximates the ratio of the Golden Mean. This page (also found at http://tony.ai/KW/goldenmath.html) gives the formula used to derive the Golden Mean, followed by some other interesting formulas.|
