18th International Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and Applications
July 1, 2018 - July 7, 2018
The purpose of the conference is to bring together people from all branches of mathematics and, to a lesser extent, from other sciences with interests in recurrence sequences, their applications and generalizations, and other special sequences of numbers and functions. Since 1984, these biennial conferences have alternated between both sides of the Atlantic, and this year it is hosted in Canada for the first time.
The Fibonacci Conference series is unusual among mathematics conferences in that there are no invited talks, and every participant, from student to senior researcher, will get the same amount of time for their talks (typically 20 minutes). The only exception is the “Lucas Lecture”, a public talk which this year will be delivered Hugh C. Williams of the University of Calgary.
Title: Mersenne, Fibonacci and Lucas: The Mersenne Prime Story and Beyond.
