The Fibonacci Sequence
Patterns have an intrinsic relationship with nature, art and many other human-made or naturally made things. Whilst living in Brazil, I was constantly surrounded by nature and such patterns were inevitably always around me. That is when I started to become aware of how involved mathematics is in the field of nature. It amazed me how within the chaos and beauty of forests, there was still such strict and repetitive order. This makes me wonder whether it is simply accidental, that a mathematical order and sequence is involved in nature or not. Many of the things we consider beautiful or appealing in today’s society are purely based on the patterns that they demonstrate. In nature, such natural occurring patterns are extremely common, like seen in seeds, leaf formation, pinecone, shells, petals and many others. One of the most commonly accepted pattern, that is seen in such described biological substances can be mathematically understood by the Fibonacci Sequence/Numbers, one of the most well-known sequences globally. The sequence is named after Leonardo Bonacci, also known as Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician and talented scholar, who helped Hindu-Arabic numerals, become more common in the Western culture of Europe. Although it was first described by mathematicians in India, many decades before Fibonacci.

## Golden Ratio Speech

731 Words | 3 Pagesapproximately 1.618. The golden ratio is derived from something known as the Fibonicci sequence. It is a sequence in which each of the terms is simply the sum of the two preceding terms . For example, there is number 1, 1, then the third number is the sum of the previous two number which is 2, then subsequently 1+2=3, and so on. When we use this number as proportion, we can find that it is very close to golden

## Essay On Pascal Triangle

1193 Words | 5 PagesReal World Applications There are many real-world applications using the Pascal Triangle. The most popular is in algebra for expanding the binomial (x+y)ⁿ, where “n” is a specific exponent. Another way the triangle can be used is to calculate probability or determine the odds. The triangle is also full of interesting and functional mathematical patterns that can be used in solving a variety of other equations and figuring out numerical problems. “A polynomial equation with two terms usually

Those equations successfully demonstrate the importance of mathematics in the world. The value in math is absolute because it is measured using equations

## Steganography Techniques

9164 Words | 37 PagesA Survey of Different Steganography Techniques Abstract Steganography is defined as the study of invisible communication. It usually deals with the ways of hiding the existence of the communicated data in such a way that it remains confidential. It maintains secrecy between the two communicating parties. The main objectives of steganography are high capacity of the hidden data, perceptual transparency (invisibility), temper resistance, undetectability, computation complexity and robustness. It

## Debussy's Six Epigraphes Antiques
