Title: | The Fibonacci Sequence: Melody and Harmony |

Speaker: | Vivek Dhand Postdoctoral Fellow Department of Mathematics Michigan State University East Lansing, Michigan |

Abstract: | The Fibonacci numbers are famous for their intriguing appearances in art and nature, and their mathematical properties have been extensively studied. Remarkably, the Fibonacci sequence is periodic mod n, for any positive integer n. In fact, we can produce many such periodic sequences by simply changing our initial conditions. We interpret these sequences in terms of points on a torus, and then as a musical score. |
