The present multi-track saxophone version is probably as rich and energetic as any of the large ensemble versions. The melody is played by threeoverdubbed sopranino saxophones in unison, the bass line is played by three baritones, and the drone is played by three altos. Pogus CD, $14.00 US

**Narayana was an Indian mathematician in the 14th**

Narayana was an Indian mathematician in the 14th. century, who proposed the following problem: A cow produces one calf every year. Begining in its fourth year, each calf produces one calf at the begining of each year. How many cows are there altogether after, for example, 17 years? While you are working on that, let us give you a musical demonstration.

**Archimedes cattle problem**

The rabbit breeding problem that caused Fibonacci to write about the sequence in Liber abaci may be unrealistic but the Fibonacci numbers really do appear in nature. For example, some plants branch in such a way that they always have a Fibonacci number of growing points. Flowers often have a Fibonacci number of petals, daisies can have 34, 55 or even as many as 89 petals! Finally, next time you look at a sunflower, take the trouble to look at the arrangement of the seeds. They appear to be spiralling outwards both to the left and the right. There are a Fibonacci number of spirals! It seems that this arrangement keeps the seeds uniformly packed no matter how large the seed head.

28
Archimedes The cattle problem of Archimedes asks to determine the size of the herd of the God Sun. The sun god had a herd of cattle consisting of bulls and cows, one part of which was white, a second black, a third spotted, and a fourth brown. The rabbit breeding problem that caused Fibonacci to write about the sequence in Liber abaci may be unrealistic but the Fibonacci numbers really do appear in nature. For example, some plants branch in such a way that they always have a Fibonacci number of growing points. Flowers often have a Fibonacci number of petals, daisies can have 34, 55 or even as many as 89 petals! Finally, next time you look at a sunflower, take the trouble to look at the arrangement of the seeds. They appear to be spiralling outwards both to the left and the right. There are a Fibonacci number of spirals! It seems that this arrangement keeps the seeds uniformly packed no matter how large the seed head. Among the bulls, the number of white ones was one half plus one third the number of the black greater than the brown.

29
**Archimedes Cattle Problem**

The number of the black, one quarter plus one fifth the number of the spotted greater than the brown. The number of the spotted, one sixth and one seventh the number of the white greater than the brown. Among the cows, the number of white ones was one third plus one quarter of the total black cattle. The number of the black, one quarter plus one fifth the total of the spotted cattle; The number of spotted, one fifth plus one sixth the total of the brown cattle

**Archimedes cattle problem**

There are infinitely many solutions. The smallest one has digits. This problem was almost solved by a german mathematician, A. Amthor, in 1880, who commented: « Assume that the size of each animal is less than the size of the smallest bacteria. Take a sphere of the same diameter as the size of the milked way, which the light takes ten thousand years to cross. Then this sphere would contain only a tiny proportion of the herd of the God Sun. » The rabbit breeding problem that caused Fibonacci to write about the sequence in Liber abaci may be unrealistic but the Fibonacci numbers really do appear in nature. For example, some plants branch in such a way that they always have a Fibonacci number of growing points. Flowers often have a Fibonacci number of petals, daisies can have 34, 55 or even as many as 89 petals!

**Number of atoms in the known finite universe**

When I was young: 1060 atoms (1 followed by 60 zeroes) A few years later (long back): 1070 The rabbit breeding problem that caused Fibonacci to write about the sequence in Liber abaci may be unrealistic but the Fibonacci numbers really do appear in nature. For example, some plants branch in such a way that they always have a Fibonacci number of growing points. Flowers often have a Fibonacci number of petals, daisies can have 34, 55 or even as many as 89 petals!

**Fibonacci (Leonardo di Pisa)**

Pisa (Italia) ≈ Liber Abaci ≈ 1202 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55,… Each term is the sum of the two preceding ones: 21+34=55 Fibonacci played an important role in reviving ancient mathematics and made significant contributions of his own. Liber abaci introduced the Hindu-Arabic place-valued decimal system and the use of Arabic numerals into Europe. The Fibonacci Quarterly is meant to serve as a focal point for interest in Fibonacci numbers and related questions, especially with respect to new results, research proposals, challenging problems, and innovative proofs of old ideas.

**Plucking the daisy petals**

En effeuillant la marguerite I love you A little bit A lot With passion With madness Not at all Je t’aime Un peu Beaucoup Passionnément À la folie Pas du tout He loves me He loves me not Sequence of the remainders of the division by 6 of the Fibonacci numbers He loves me. He loves me not. The chant continues as one-by-one the daisy petals are plucked from the flower and dropped to the ground. At game's end the last petal tells all; whether or not the person of their desire also cares for them in return. 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 2, 1, 3, 4, 1, 5, 0, 5,… First multiple of 6 : 144

**The Da Vinci Code Five enigmas to be solved**

In the book written by Dan Brown in one finds some (weak) crypto techniques. 1 The first enigma asks for putting in the right order the integers of the sequence This reordering will provide the key of the bank account. 2 An english anagram O DRACONIAN DEVIL, OH LAME SAINT The rabbit breeding problem that caused Fibonacci to write about the sequence in Liber abaci may be unrealistic but the Fibonacci numbers really do appear in nature. For example, some plants branch in such a way that they always have a Fibonacci number of growing points.

57
**The Da Vinci Code the bank account key involving eight numbers**

The eight numbers of the key of the bank account are: These are the eight first integers of the Fibonacci sequence. The goal is to find the right order at the first attempt. The right answer is given by selecting the natural ordering: The rabbit breeding problem that caused Fibonacci to write about the sequence in Liber abaci may be unrealistic but the Fibonacci numbers really do appear in nature. For example, some plants branch in such a way that they always have a Fibonacci number of growing points. Flowers often have a Fibonacci number of petals, daisies can have 34, 55 or even as many as 89 petals! Finally, next time you look at a sunflower, take the trouble to look at the arrangement of the seeds. They appear to be spiralling outwards both to the left and the right. There are a Fibonacci number of spirals! It seems that this arrangement keeps the seeds uniformly packed no matter how large the seed head. The total number of solutions is 20 160

**Primitive languages Given some letters, how many words does one obtain**

if one uses each letter exactly once? With 1 letter a, there is just one word: a. With 2 letters a,b, there are 2 words, namely ab, ba. With 3 letters a,b,c : select the first letter (3 choices), once it is selected, complete with the 2 words involving the 2 remaining letters. Hence the number of words is 3 ·2 ·1=6, namely abc, acb, bac, bca, cab, cba. The rabbit breeding problem that caused Fibonacci to write about the sequence in Liber abaci may be unrealistic but the Fibonacci numbers really do appear in nature. For example, some plants branch in such a way that they always have a Fibonacci number of growing points. Flowers often have a Fibonacci number of petals, daisies can have 34, 55 or even as many as 89 petals!

Les pieds de lavande sont disposés aux sommets d'un réseau Z² du plan horizontal enneigé. L'image donne de ce réseau une vue en perspective, qui est sa projection sur le plan du film à partir d'un point (le centre optique de l'objectif). Observer et expliquer : - la ligne d'horizon - les "points de convergence" à l'infini, qui correspondent aux droites de pentes 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 du réseau. Distinguez-vous celles de pente -1/2, 1/2, 3/2 ? - les nombreuses divisions harmoniques, formées par trois pieds alignés consécutifs et le point à l'infini de la droite qui les porte.
