1 Fibonacci

2 Fibonacci of Pisa Italian Middle Ages Mathematician Brought Hindu Arabic Numeral System to Europe Through the publication in the early 13th century of his Book of Calculation, the Liber Abaci. Posed a problem in the book….

3 Arabic Numerals I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X L, C, D, M Compare example: 1954 = MCMLIV Roman Numerals

4 Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci – Fibonacci - son of the Fibonaccis… Pisano – from where he lived most of his life, Pisa Pisa, Italy - famous for its leaning tower Building of the tower began when Fibonacci was 3 years old. Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci born 1170 died 1250 in Pisa, Italy

5 The problem…. Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci

6 A man puts a pair of baby rabbits into an enclosed garden. The following month the rabbits are teenagers. The next month they are mature and have two babies. Continue this pattern. How many pairs of rabbits will there be in the garden in a year?

10 Fibonacci Sequence Demonstrates the idea that each stage of natural growth or development refers to its prior state in order to take its next evolutionary step This connects to the idea of Sacred Geometry

23 Le Tournesol may be Steichen's only sunflower painting, but his fascination with this plant is evident in the numerous photographic studies he made in the 1920s. He photographed Sunflower in a White Vase at this time. Almost twenty years earlier, Steichen had been impressed with other sunflowers: the painted still lifes of Vincent van Gogh. In 1901, he visited an exhibition of Van Gogh's work, which left a deep impression on him. He returned to the exhibition the next day, noting later that "three pictures of the now celebrated sunflower series made a particular and dramatic appeal to me." Edward Steichen, Sunflower in a White Vase, from the series Sunflowers from Seed to Seed,

56 Phi Greek Letter

57 Golden Ratio Phi – math symbol = … Is irrational

58 Golden Ratio + 1 =

59 Ratio of successive Fibonacci numbers converge on phi Fibonacci discovered the series which converges on phi The ratio of each successive pair of numbers in the series approximates phi Example 5 divided by 3 is 1.666… 8 divided by 5 is 1.60

81 Musical frequencies based on Fibonacci ratios Musical frequencies are based on Fibonacci ratios

82 Musical instrument design often based on phi the golden ratio

83 Musical instrument: piano Within the scale consisting of 13 keys 8 of them are white, 5 are black which are split into groups of 3 and 2 Fibonacci Music

84 Adrian Bejan Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University Durham, North Carolina Research The human eye is capable of interpreting an image featuring the golden ratio faster than any other

85 Adrian Bejan Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University Durham, North Carolina "It is well known that the eyes take in information more efficiently when they scan side to side, as opposed to up and down. When you look at what so many people have been drawing and building, you see these proportions everywhere."

86 Adrian Bejan Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University Durham, North Carolina “This ratio represents the best proportions to transfer to the brain.”
