Prof. Marc Renault from Shippensburg University will present "Everything you Wanted to know About the Fibonacci Sequence (and Some Things You Didn't Want to Know)". Everyone welcome to attend.

In 1994 he learned about the Fibonacci sequence in a number theory class and has been fascinated by it ever since. This simple sequence of integers 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 12, 21, 34, 89 contains a multitude of patterns that have fascinated mathematicians for centuries. In this talk he'll introduce the sequence, show some clever proofs for well-known identities, and talk about some recent work concerning the sequence.
