On Fibonacci and Fibonacci-Like Numbers by Matrix Method

Shikha Bhatnagar, Omprakash Sikhwal


The Fibonacci, Lucas and Fibonacci-Like sequences are famous for possessing amazing properties and identities. There is a long tradition of using matrices and determinants to study Fibonacci numbers, Lucas numbers and other numbers of various celebrated sequences. In this paper, we present 2x2 order matrix representation of Fibonacci-Like numbers with some identities of Fibonacci-Like numbers and Fibonacci numbers. Sum of product of Fibonacci numbers and Fibonacci-Like numbers are taken in various pattern and identities derive by relevant matrix.
