Nature, The Golden Ratio and Fibonacci NumbersI finally tackled a subject that has fascinated me: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20061029 10:39:39
Re: Nature, The Golden Ratio and Fibonacci NumbersI tried 0.61803 in the animation and got a straight line. I had previously worked well with .318 Last edited by All_Is_Number (20061029 10:41:58) You can shear a sheep many times but skin him only once. #3 20061029 11:05:32
Re: Nature, The Golden Ratio and Fibonacci NumbersYea, there is a bug. I tried a few numbers and got different patterns. Then all of the sudden it kept doing a striaght line for whatever I inputted. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #4 20061029 11:12:21
Re: Nature, The Golden Ratio and Fibonacci NumbersIt seems to happen after a number of tries. I can't seem to find any magic number that screws it up. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #5 20061029 11:27:05
Re: Nature, The Golden Ratio and Fibonacci NumbersCould be something wrong with the number  an extra space or something, so that it is "NAN" (not a number). "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
