Seminar Abstract:

The famous Fibonacci numbers 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, ... have attracted a lot of interest in and outside of mathematics. They play an important role in applications in biology, but also in computer science and other areas. The lecture will draw the attention to questions in linear algebra which lead to Fibonacci numbers: we will give a categorical interpretation of some well-known combinatorial identities, but also exhibit new partition formulas.
