"Fibonacci Trees: A Dream Come True"
Previous Lectures: (A marvelously terrible algorithm from Leonhard Euler), (Mathematics to the Rescue: Centrality in Graphs)
Abstract: In the mathematical literature, there are two different structures that are called “Fibonacci Trees.” Such ambiguity must not be allowed to stand! I will present the two different structures, and attendees at the talk will help me to decide which is appropriately called a Fibonacci Tree, and what we shall call the other one.
