    FIBONACCI NUMBERS The Fibonacci sequence, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, . . . , where the first two terms in the sequence are each 1 and every successive term is the sum of the two previous terms, can be defined recursively as follows:
    Fn= {
    1 when = 1
    1 when = 2
    Fn-2 + Fn-1 when ≥ 3

    The ratio of successive terms approaches the golden ratio, ø = (1 + √5) / 2 ≈ 1.6803399.
    Fibonacci numbers occur often in nature, in particular in phyllotaxy, the study of leaf arrangement on a stem. The spirals on sunflower seed heads, on pineapples, and in pine cones are invariably Fibonacci numbers or multiples of Fibonacci numbers.
