Determinantal Identities of Fibonacci, Lucas and Generalized Fibonacci-Lucas Sequence

Yogesh Kumar Gupta, Omprakash Sikhwal, Mamta Singh


Determinants have played a significant part in various areas in mathematics. For instance, they are quite useful in the analysis and solution of system of linear equations. There are different perspectives on the study of determinant. In this paper we present some determinant identities of generalized Fibonacci-Lucas sequence are presented.
