(YOUR SIGNATURE) 1 (18 pts.) A sequence of numbers f ,f 1 ,f 2 ,... is defined by the recurrence f k +2 = 3 f k +1- f k , with starting values f = 1, f 1 = 1. (Thus, the first few terms in the sequence are 1 , 1 , 2 , 5 , 13 , 34 , 89 ,... .) (a) Defining u k = f k +1 f k , re-express the above recurrence as u k +1 = A u k , and give the matrix A . (b) Find the eigenvalues of A , and use these to predict what the ratio f k +1 /f k of successive terms in the sequence will approach for large k . (c) The sequence above starts with f = f 1 = 1, and | f k | grows rapidly with k . Keep f = 1, but give a different value of f 1 that will make the sequence (with the...
