  Fibonacci numbers (Python) - LiteratePrograms
The Fibonacci numbers are the integer sequence 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21,..., in which each item is formed by adding the previous two.
Fibonacci number programs that implement this definition directly are often used as introductory examples of recursion.
This may be useful, for example to find the Fibonacci number closest to a given number.

Write a program with a function with the following input: the number of bed knobs per unit, the number of units per line and the number of lines.
The program will ask the user if he or she wants to continue after each area calculation is made.
A user can then request that the numbers be printed from a lower limit to a higher limit up to the 20th number in the series.

 Fibonacci number program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In many beginning computer science courses, an introduction to the concept of recursion often includes a program to calculate and print Fibonacci numbers (or computing the factorial of a number).
In simple terms, each number is the sum of the previous two numbers, with the first and second term 0 and 1 respectively.
The Fibonacci sequence is also a popular introductory program for recursion (along with factorials) in computer science classes.

The Fibonacci sequence goes: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, etc., in which each number is equal to the sum of the two preceding numbers: 1+1=2; 1+2=3; 2+3=5; 3+5=8; 5+8=13; 8+13=21; 13+21=34; 21+34=55; 34+55=89; 55+89=144; 89+144=233.
Thus Fibonacci numbers are a kind of golden ratio in disguise, and they, too, pop up in the most unexpected places.

Numbers which are real have zero as their complex part so the real number 3 is the same as the complex number 3 + 0 i and has "coordinates" (3,0).
Numbers which are purely imaginary have a real-part of zero and so are of the form 0+yi always lying exactly on the y axis (the imaginary axis).

Scheme is a functional programming language and a dialect of Lisp.
They can be used to add support for new paradigms, like object-oriented programming, logic programming, etc. Scheme provides a hygienic macro system which, while not quite as powerful as Common Lisp's macro system, is much safer and often easier to work with.
Purely functional programs have no state and don't have side-effects, and are therefore automatically thread-safe and considerably easier to verify than imperative programs.

The Fibonacci sequence, like any additive sequence, naturally tends to be geometric with common ratio not a rational power of 10; consequently, for a sufficiently large number of terms, Benford's law of first significant digit {i.e., first digit 1 =< d =< 9 occurring with probability log_10(d+1) - log_10(d)} holds.
