### Examples

Fibonacci(0)                            # 1
Fibonacci(2)                            # 2
Fibonacci(0:3)                          # 0 1 1 2

# Golden ratio
F <- Fibonacci(1:25)                    # ... 75025 121393
f25 <- F[25]/F[24]                      #     1.618033989
phi <- (sqrt(5) + 1)/2
abs(f25 - phi)                          # 7.945178e-11

# Fibonacci numbers without iteration

phi <- (sqrt(5) + 1)/2

round(fib)
}
