Celebrate Fibonacci Day!
Today, November 23 (11/23) is Fibonacci Day! There will certainly be a huge celebration in the year 5813, but until then you can read some of our books discussing the beauty of Fibonacci sequences:
Fibonacci’s De Practica Geometrie (Springerlink online book)
The Mathematica Guidebook for Numerics (Springerlink online book)
You could also play around with writing a recursive function to generate some Fibonacci numbers of your own! Safari Tech books online offers these up for help:
C++ how to program: example using recursion
