EEL 3135 Dr. Fred J. Taylor, Professor Lesson #2 Signal Representation Challenge Response The Fibonacci sequence is given by F n = F n-1 + F n-2 for the initial conditions F 0 =1 , F -1 =0. Iterating produces a discrete-time sequence of the predicted rabbit population F[n]={1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34, 55, …} at some counting index n.
