Journal History

thought this was interesting   leonardo-fibonacci- by GeaAusten  golden-rectangle by GeaAusten  Another simple tool for web design linked to the golden ratio is Fibonacci numbers. A Fibonacci sequence begins with 0 and 1. The previous two numbers are added together to produce the next number in the sequence: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34… and so on.

A little math tells us that the relationship between sequential Fibonacci sequence numbers is startlingly close to the golden ratio – divide the any number in the sequence with the number before it and you will get – you guessed it – 1.618.

Leonardo Bonacci, better known as Fibonacci, was a 13th century Italian mathematician counted amongst the greatest mathematicians ever to have existed. He is credited to be "the most talented Western mathematician of the Middle Ages". He made many significant contributions to mathematics and popularized the Hindu-Arabic numeral system to the Western World. He gave a detailed account of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system in his book the ‘Liber Abaci’ (Book of Abacus or Book of Calculation) and also gave to Europe the sequence of Fibonacci numbers. Born to a prosperous merchant, the young Fibonacci travelled widely with his father and received the opportunity to study the numeral systems in countries around the Mediterranean coast. He was fascinated by the ten symbols of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system and was determined to introduce the system in Europe. Back in Italy after his travels, he published ‘Liber Abaci’ which became a very popular work on mathematics. Emperor Frederick II was much impressed by the mathematician’s work and encouraged him in his intellectual pursuits. With royal support, Fibonacci received the opportunity to correspond with other contemporary mathematicians and collaborate with them in mathematical enquiries. There are many mathematical concepts named after Fibonacci but his work in number theory was almost wholly ignored during the Middle Ages.

Recommended Lists Outside:  
Childhood & Early Life
  • The exact date of Fibonacci’s birth is not known. It is believed he was born sometime around 1170–75 in Pisa. His father Guglielmo Bonacci was a wealthy Italian merchant who directed a trading post in North Africa. According to some sources, his father also served as the consul for Pisa.
  • As a young boy, Fibonacci travelled extensively with his father. He was primarily educated in Bejaia, a Mediterranean port in northeastern Algeria where his father was posted. He studied mathematics with an Arab master.
  • Continuing his travels, he visited Egypt, Syria, Greece, Sicily, and Provence. His travels gave him the opportunity to interact with merchants belonging to diverse cultures and he discussed the different methods of calculation with them. He was very much intrigued by the unique numerical systems adopted in different regions of the world.
Later Years
  • Fibonacci was particularly fascinated by the ten symbols of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system—1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and most importantly, a symbol for zero 0. At that time Roman numerals were used in Europe for performing arithmetic calculations. This method was not an easy one and had several limitations.
  • The young mathematician was eager to introduce the Hindu-Arabic numerical system in Europe. Upon his return to Pisa around the year 1200, he wrote a number of texts on mathematics which played an important role in reviving ancient mathematical skills. He also produced several works drawing upon his own experiences and knowledge.
  • In 1202, he completed ‘Liber Abaci’ which was among the first Western books to describe Hindu-Arabic numbers traditionally described as "Arabic Numerals". At that time, Hindu-Arabic numerals were known to only a few European intellectuals through translations of the writings of the 9th century Arab mathematician al-Khwārizmī. Fibonacci helped to popularize the concept in the European world. His work gained fame quickly, and soon many copies of the work were made.
  • The Holy Roman emperor Frederick II who had a keen interest in science and mathematics came to know of Fibonacci through scholars at his court who had corresponded with Fibonacci. These scholars included Michael Scotus, Theodorus Physicus, and Dominicus Hispanus.
  • The emperor interacted with Fibonacci and the mathematician corresponded with Frederick and his scholars for several years. He collaborated with the scholars to work on mathematical problems, and presented the solutions to problems posed by Johannes of Palermo, in his work ‘Flos’ (1225). He dedicated his ‘Liber quadratorum’ (Book of Square Numbers) to Frederick.
Major Works
  • Fibonacci is best known for his ‘Liber Abaci’, in which he popularized the system of the Hindu–Arabic numerals to the Western world. He advocated the use of the ten symbols—1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0—and showed how the system could be implemented for practical purposes like commercial bookkeeping and calculation of interest. The book profoundly impacted European thought.
  • In this work ‘Practica Geometriae’, he examined the techniques used in surveying and the measurement and partition of areas and volumes among other topics in practical geometry.
  • His book on algebra, ‘Liber quadratorum’ (Book of Square Numbers) examined several topics in number theory and gave an inductive method for finding Pythagorean triples. This work had a major influence on later mathematicians like Fermat and Euler.
Personal Life & Legacy
  • Little is known of Fibonacci’s personal life. It is not known whether he was married or not.
  • He was known by several names including Leonardo of Pisa, Leonardo Pisano Bigollo, and Leonardo Fibonacci.
  • The details regarding his death are also obscure. It is generally believed he died around 1240–50.
  • The Fibonacci sequence is named after him. The sequence of numbers, in which each number is the sum of the previous two numbers, was introduced by Fibonacci to Western European mathematics. Many other mathematical concepts, like Brahmagupta–Fibonacci identity and the Fibonacci search technique are also named after him.

The Golden Ratio by GeaAusten  
The perfect Ratio of 1:1.618 that occurs everywhere in Nature. In this example I used the Corona (Latin for Crown) of a Stapelia schinzii var. schinzii flower (from Namibia, Africa), to illustrate Nature's divine Ratio. The Inner and Outer Corona, and Corolla Lobes (Petals) all conform to this exact Ratio. The Golden Ratio (or Golden Mean) can be found in everything from human anatomy, to a nautilus shell, galaxies, butterflies, insects, plants and flowers. Architects used this formula (π / Phi) from the Parthenon to the Pyramids, and Renaissance Artists like Leonardo da Vinci used it for the Composition of the Mona Lisa. Best viewed LARGE.

My father made the first Peace/C.N.D. badges , I was with him helping him chose which design to use.. as a child prodigy I started painting when I was very young, but have never really been commercial.. but now I want the world to see my art..Someone asked me if I had ever put the CND sign in one of my designs//I have once,,
but I have a very different attitude to it than I think a lot of peope would expect,
My father was a real Purist,,
he loved simplicity, and black and white,
,. when the whole Peace movement developed,,
many years later, he absolutely winced at what was done to the sign
,, the embellishments of all kinds..
so I think I have copied him, we were extremely close,,
and I worshipped him..
he taught me to draw and paint ,, from when I was three,, and we used to sit together when he was making his pottery and talk about what he would do next.. and different designs etc. I have always felt the simplicity of the design is very beautiful,,, and enough in itself.. I'm glad the Peace movement have embraced the sign, and that people have made it their own.. the extraordinary popularity of the design is due to something I believe is quite sacred ... Gea Austen.

DEEP SEA DIVER
apologies to Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar named Desire...

" Now will you just open your eyes to this stuff here. Now I mean, what - has she got this stuff out of teacher's pay?...Will you look at these fine feathers and furs that she comes to bring herself in here. What is this article? That's a solid gold dress, I believe...Now what is that? There's a treasure chest of a pirate...That's pearls, Stella, ropes of 'em. What is your sister - a deep sea diver? Bracelets, solid gold. (To Stella) Where are your pearls and gold bracelets?...And here you are. Diamonds. A crown for an empress...Here's your plantation Stella, right here...Well, the Kowalskis and the DuBois - there's just a different notion on this."

KIWI FRUIT
love the intricacies

.Kiwifruit, or Chinese gooseberry is the edible berry of several species of woody vines in the genus Actinidia. The most common cultivar group of kiwifruit is oval, about the size of a large hen's egg. It has a fibrous, dull greenish-brown skin and bright green or golden flesh with rows of tiny, black, edible seeds
.Kiwis are small fruits that pack a lot of flavor and plenty of health benefits. Their green flesh is sweet and tangy. It's also full of nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, and potassium. They also have a lot of antioxidants and are a good source of fiber.
