Fibonacci's determinantHello, I want to prove that the determinant of Fibonacci's nxn tridiagonal matrix is equal to the (n+1)th term of the Fibonacci sequence. #2 20120910 19:31:28
Re: Fibonacci's determinantHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20120910 19:46:56
Re: Fibonacci's determinantAh I got it, you start from the beggining, I was doing the cofactors of the last terms... Thank you! #4 20120910 20:19:38

Re: Fibonacci's determinantI'm glad I found this forum. I am being amazed by some topics in the "Dark Discussions at Cafe Infinity" section. Mainly one article about the Vandermonde Determinant. #6 20120910 21:18:05
