Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|We use base 10 for written numbers, and computers use base 2, but what about using the Fibonacci numbers as the column headers? or base Phi (1.618034...) instead of base 10? There are some interesting infinite series that relate to these - each with a definition very similar to the Fibonacci numbers! They introduce you to the new world of self-similar objects and fractals.|
