Synopses & Reviews
This volume presents the Proceedings of the Tenth International Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and their Applications, held in June 2002 in Flagstaff, Arizona. It contains research papers on the Fibonacci Numbers and their generalizations. All papers were carefully refereed for content and originality. The authors represent eight different countries. This volume will be of interest to graduate students and research mathematicians, whose work involves number theory, combinatorics, algebraic number theory, finite geometry and special functions.
Synopsis
This book contains 28 research articles from among the 49 papers and abstracts presented at the Tenth International Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and Their Applications. These articles have been selected after a careful review by expert referees, and they range over many areas of mathematics. The Fibonacci numbers and recurrence relations are their unifying bond. We note that the article "Fibonacci, Vern and Dan," which follows the Introduction to this volume, is not a research paper. It is a personal reminiscence by Marjorie Bicknell-Johnson, a longtime member of the Fibonacci Association. The editor believes it will be of interest to all readers. It is anticipated that this book, like the eight predecessors, will be useful to research workers and students at all levels who are interested in the Fibonacci numbers and their applications.
