Applications of Fibonacci Numbers : Volume 6 Proceedings of `The Sixth International Research Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and Their Applications', Washington State University, Pullman, Washington, U.S.A., July 18-22, 1994
This book contains 43 papers form among the 55 papers presented at the Sixth International Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and Their Applications which was held at Washington State University, Pullman, Washington, from July 18-22, 1994. These papers have been selected after a careful review by well known referees in the field, and they range from elementary number theory to probability and statistics. The Fibonacci numbers and recurrence relations are their unifying bond. It is anticipated that this book, like its five predecessors, will be useful to research workers and graduate students interested in the Fibonacci numbers and their applications.

Back cover copy
This volume contains the proceedings of the Sixth International Research Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and their Applications. It includes a carefully refereed collection of papers dealing with number patterns, linear recurrences and the application of the Fibonacci Numbers to probability, statistics, differential equations, cryptography, computer science and elementary number theory. This volume provides a platform for recent discoveries and encourages further research. It is a continuation of the work presented in the previously published proceedings of the earlier conferences, and shows the growing interest in, and importance of, the pure and applied aspects of Fibonacci Numbers in many different areas of science. This book will be of interest to those whose work involves number theory, statistics and probability, algebra, numerical analysis, group theory and generalisations.
