How good a pseudorandom number generator is the Fibonacci series?
BINSIC is moving on and now this code… …will indeed generate a Fibonacci series (like all readers of the peerless Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs I know I am using a lousy algorithm to generate the series but I hope you understand it is demonstration, rather than production, code). This can work up to […]

Something more on Fibonacci numbers
My earlier blog about the Fibonacci series gets a lot of hits, so I thought I would write something more, as clearly there is interest. Once again this is from “Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs” (available for free here electronically): Let and . Then . So . (1) (2) Then (3) Simplifying (2) (4) […]

Something interesting about Fibonacci numbers
Maybe everyone else knows this already – but I did not until I was reading Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs and I picked it up… Well, the Fibonacci series are defined as: This generates the sequence 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 etc. (Apparently Fibonacci, real name Leonardo Pisano Bigollo, used the sequence to […]
