*In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers, form a sequence called the Fibonacci sequence, such that each number is the sum of the two preceding ones, starting from 0 and 1. Fibonacci numbers are strongly related to the golden ratio, a proportion commonly used in classical architecture and in the design of the Cade Museum.
