In fact, the matrix formulation of Fibonacci numbers mentioned before can be generalized to represent any 2-D matrix and, by way of continued fractions, any real number – not just the golden mean. This post is inspired from David Austin’s AMS feature column and draws on Phillipe Flajolet’s beautiful survey on continued fractions to set the stage for a future post on Diophantine approximation.
