Abstract

The discoveries of Leonard of Pisa, better known as Fibonacci, are revolutionary contributions to the mathematical world. His best-known work is the Fibonacci sequence, in which each new number is the sum of the two numbers preceding it. When various operations and manipulations are performed on the numbers of this sequence, beautiful and incredible patterns begin to emerge. The numbers from this sequence are manifested throughout nature in the forms and designs of many plants and animals and have also been reproduced in various manners in art, architecture, and music.
