Michelle Jenneke 'Creeper' Is Everyone On The Internet Right Now While the innocence of 19-year-old Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke's warm-up routine is debatable, there's no two ways about the slow-motion re-cut of it that went viral last week. Yes, her milkshake brought all the boys to the Web. And now that collective leer has its own avatar: the Creeper. Digitom Productions posted a spoof in which a lad (that's Canadian for "bro," right?) Fibonacci Leonardo Bonacci (c. 1170 – c. 1250)[2]—known as Fibonacci (Italian: [fiboˈnattʃi]), and also Leonardo of Pisa, Leonardo Pisano, Leonardo Pisano Bigollo, Leonardo Fibonacci—was an Italian mathematician, considered as "the most talented Western mathematician of the Middle Ages.".[3][4] Fibonacci introduced to Europe the Hindu–Arabic numeral system primarily through his composition in 1202 of Liber Abaci (Book of Calculation).[5] He also introduced to Europe the sequence of Fibonacci numbers (discovered earlier in India but not previously known in Europe), which he used as an example in Liber Abaci.[6] Life[edit] Fibonacci was born around 1170 to Guglielmo Bonacci, a wealthy Italian merchant and, by some accounts, the consul for Pisa. Guglielmo directed a trading post in Bugia, a port in the Almohad dynasty's sultanate in North Africa.

Biographie : Leonardo Fibonacci (1170 [Pise] - 1245 [Pise]) Leonard de Pise, plus connu sous le nom de Fibonacci, est le premier grand mathématicien de l'ère chrétienne du monde occidental. D'assez nombreux détails de sa jeunesse nous sont connus par les propos qu'il tient lui-même dans la préface d'un de ses livres, le Liber abaci. Né à Pise vers 1170, il rejoint très jeune son père à la colonie de Bujania, en Algérie, où ce dernier est responsable du bureau des douanes pour le compte de l'ordre des marchands de Pise. Voulant faire de son fils un marchand, il l'initie à l'art du calcul indo-arabe.

Suite de Fibonacci The Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers: The next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it. The 2 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+1) Similarly, the 3 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+2), And the 5 is (2+3), and so on! Example: the next number in the sequence above is 21+34 = 55 Fibonacci Numbers, the Golden section and the Golden String Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section This is the Home page for Dr Ron Knott's multimedia web site on the Fibonacci numbers, the Golden section and the Golden string hosted by the Mathematics Department of the University of Surrey, UK.

Fibonacci number A tiling with squares whose side lengths are successive Fibonacci numbers In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers or Fibonacci sequence are the numbers in the following integer sequence: or (often, in modern usage): (sequence A000045 in OEIS). The Fibonacci spiral: an approximation of the golden spiral created by drawing circular arcs connecting the opposite corners of squares in the Fibonacci tiling;[3] this one uses squares of sizes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and 34. By definition, the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are either 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the chosen starting point of the sequence, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two.
