Maths - Fibonacci Series Generator

Show/Hide:DefinitionsFormulae Instructions

Introduction:

This page allows you to generate the elements of the classic Fibonacci series. You may choose between a numbered list, or an unformatted sequence of results. Both will have exactly the same entries. Unlike the faster Quick Fibonacci generator, this generator will retain full precision (almost) infinitely, but this comes at the price of significantly slower operation. Please note that beyond about 200 values, the numbers displayed will start to get too long to display on a single line. The 'numbered list' result style is therefore formatted to allow the lines to wrap; the 'simple list' style displays unformatted numbers that can more easily be used in other software.

Caveats:

If you are reading this paragraph, then you probably don't have JavaScript installed/enabled on your computer.
At this point in time the calculators on this site are entirely dependent on JavaScript. Given enough time and money it is hoped to develop a version in the future which will be able to operate independently. Since JavaScript runs on your own computer, rather than on this server, it has been possible to set up this site much more quickly than if a server-side language was used, and it is possible to serve far more pages with the available bandwidth.

Formulae:

The classic Fibonacci sequence can be defined as: n[x] = n[x-1] + n[x-2]
Where: n[0] = 0 and n[1] = 1
and: x is the current element number, or 'index'

Instructions

If you change the 'Number of entries to generate' box, after a list has been generated, the original list will be expanded from where it previously finished.
If you have a very old computer, and choose to calculate a long list, the system may become temporarily unresponsive. If this proves problematic, choose a small number first, then increase gradually. Only new values will be created each time.
