Fibonacci lived in the days before printing, so his books were hand written and the only way to have a copy of one of his books was to have another hand-written copy made. The Fibonacci sequence is named after Leonardo of Pisa, who was known as Fibonacci. London: Liber Abaci's Geometry in Nature. The Fibonacci sequence first appeared as the solution to a problem in the Liber Abaci, a book written by Leonardo Fibonacci in 1202 to introduce the Hindu-Arabic numerals used today to a Europe still using Roman numerals. Fibonacci is known for popularising the Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3 etc.) in Christian Europe, but is probably most famous for the number sequence he published in his book, Liber Abaci. Fibonacci is most known for book, Liber Abaci (Latin for "The Book of the Abacus"). This sequence has been studied since the publication of Fibonacci's book Liber Abaci. The sequence was named after an Italian mathematician known as Leonardo of Pisa (or Leonardo de Fibonacci). El Liber Abaci (1202) de Fibonacci significa la introducció dels numerals indis en l'Europa del segle XIII. 1250), but better known as Fibonacci. Fibonacci was taught mathematics in Bugia and travelled widely with his father and recognised the enormous advantages of the mathematical systems used in the countries they visited. Incidently he did not discover this series but had used it as an example in the Liber Abaci. Fibonacci subsequently travelled broadly, where he learnt from mathematicians of different cultures. Liber Abaci introduced practical uses for the Arabic numerals 0 through 9 to Western Europe. The well-known Fibonacci sequence is defined as following: Here we regard n as the index of the Fibonacci number F(n). Fibonacci himself used convention 3 above. The Wikipedia article gives a lovely illustration of a page from Fibonacci's Liber Abaci which has a table of the Fibonacci numbers F0, … F12. The Book of the Abacus was a hefty 15-chapter 459-page tome. In 1202, he wrote a book called Liber Abaci in which he gives name to the number sequence. This week I am reading the Liber Abaci (The Book of Calculations) by Leonardo Pisano, better known as Fibonacci.
