On Some Identities and Generating Functions for Generalized k-Fibonacci Sequence

Arfat Ahmad Wani, G. P. S. Rathore, Kiran Sisodiya


In this article we study a new generalized k-Fibonacci sequence, with initial conditions and  which is generated by the recurrence relationand . The main aim of the paper is to present the identities of the generalized k-Fibonacci sequence as well as Binet’s formula and generating functions for the generalized k-Fibonacci sequence. The main results of this paper can be proved by Binet formula method and by induction method.
