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.

Science Mysteries, Fibonacci Numbers and Golden section in Nature
Golden Ratio & Golden Section : : Golden Rectangle : : Golden Spiral Golden Ratio & Golden Section In mathematics and the arts, two quantities are in the golden ratio if the ratio between the sum of those quantities and the larger one is the same as the ratio between the larger one and the smaller. Expressed algebraically: The golden ratio is often denoted by the Greek letter phi (Φ or φ).
Golden ratio
Line segments in the golden ratio In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. The figure on the right illustrates the geometric relationship. Expressed algebraically, for quantities a and b with a > b > 0, The golden ratio is also called the golden section (Latin: sectio aurea) or golden mean.[1][2][3] Other names include extreme and mean ratio,[4] medial section, divine proportion, divine section (Latin: sectio divina), golden proportion, golden cut,[5] and golden number.[6][7][8]

The Golden Section, Golden Ratio or Divine Proportion based on Phi, 1.618: Constructions and Applications
GoldenNumber.Net explores the appearance of Phi, 1.618 (also known as the Golden Ratio, Golden Mean, Golden Section or Divine Proportion, in mathematics, geometry, life and the universe and shows you how to apply it, and its applications are limitless: The Golden Section is a ratio based on a the number Phi, 1.618… The Golden Section or Ratio is is a ratio or proportion defined by the number Phi (= 1.618033988749895… ) It can be derived with a number of geometric constructions, each of which divides a line segment at the unique point where: the ratio of the whole line (A) to the large segment (B) is the same as

I don’t consider myself just a scrapbooker, photographer or designer. I consider myself an artist. It is not just cause I went to art school or that I like to create or that I appreciate art. Maybe it is all of these mixed together and maybe some other things mixed in there that I cannot explain. I see so many creative things around that inspire me.

Pythagoras & Music of the Spheres There is geometry in the humming of the strings ... there is music in the spacing of the spheres. Pythagoras From Egypt we move across the Mediterranean Sea to the Greek island of Samos, the birthplace of Pythagoras, whose ideas dominate most of the material in this course. We'll introduce Pythagoras and his secret society of the Pythagoreans.

The Fibonacci Numbers and Golden section in Nature - 1
This page has been split into TWO PARTS. This, the first, looks at the Fibonacci numbers and why they appear in various "family trees" and patterns of spirals of leaves and seeds. The second page then examines why the golden section is used by nature in some detail, including animations of growing plants. Let's look first at the Rabbit Puzzle that Fibonacci wrote about and then at two adaptations of it to make it more realistic. This introduces you to the Fibonacci Number series and the simple definition of the whole never-ending series. Fibonacci's Rabbits

Using strings - looking for strings in a binary
By Joe Barr on October 25, 2004 (8:00:00 AM) strings is part of a set of tools included in binutils. It searches files you specify and prints human-readable strings found in them, whether they are binary files or not. I just happened to have a copy of a firmware update for D-Link's DCS-1000W camera on my hard drive, and I was eager to see what strings could tell me about it.

Mystery of the Real 3D Mandelbrot Fractal
They're all very nice, but imagine such pictures in three dimensions, with all the advantages that 3D can allow such as parallax, perspective, and richer detail along with subtle light sourcing, shadows, and reflections. And actually, it turns out there are quite a few '3D' Mandelbot pics out there if you look..... Mandelbrot Flavours .....But are they the real McCoy, or just pale imitations? In fact, whenever you see a so-called 3D Mandelbrot image, roughly speaking, they can be divided into four types:

setuid
setuid and setgid (short for "set user ID upon execution" and "set group ID upon execution", respectively)[1] are Unix access rights flags that allow users to run an executable with the permissions of the executable's owner or group respectively and to change behaviour in directories. They are often used to allow users on a computer system to run programs with temporarily elevated privileges in order to perform a specific task. While the assumed user id or group id privileges provided are not always elevated, at a minimum they are specific. setuid on executables[edit] While the setuid feature is very useful in many cases, its improper use can pose a security risk[2] if the setuid attribute is assigned to executable programs that are not carefully designed. Due to potential security issues,[3] many operating systems ignore the setuid attribute when applied to executable shell scripts.
