FIBONACCI
Leonardo of Pisa, also known as Fibonacci, was a
great mathematician
during the middle ages.
He was born in Pisa, Italy, about 1175 AD. He wrote the
book entitled "Liber abaci", which was completed in 1202. This book described the
use of arithmetic in the decimal system. Fibonacci
discovered the sequence of numbers that later bears his name, the
Fibonacci series. It has been shown that the Fibonacci series is closely
related to the golden ratio, and can be observed in a variety of naturally
occurring phenomena.
