Fibonacci numbers
Also called Fibonacci sequence. It is the infinite sequence in which the first two numbers are 1 and any number thereafter is the sum of the two previous numbers, that is: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, ...

Because of the unique characteristics, the Fibonacci numbers have many potential applications in astronomy, botany, and psychology.
