A series of whole numbers in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. Beginning with 0 and 1, the sequence of Fibonacci numbers would be 0,1,1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, etc. using the formula n = n(-1) + n(-2), where the n(-1) means “the last number before n in the series” and n(-2) refers to “the second last one before n in the series.”
In computer programming, Fibonacci numbers give a model for designing recursive programming algorithms where the time for any routine is the time within the routine itself, plus the time for the recursive calls.
The Fibonacci numbers were originally defined by the Italian mathematician Fibonacci, also known as Leonardo da Pisa, in the 13th century to model the growth of rabbit populations.
- Fibre Channel
A serial data transfer architecture developed by a consortium of computer and mass storage device manufacturers and now being standardized by ANSI. The most prominent Fibre Channel standard is Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL). FC-AL was designed for new mass storage devices and other peripheral devices that require very high bandwidth. Using optical fiber to […]
- File Replication service
Abbreviated as FRS, File Replication service is a multithreaded, multiple-master replication engine in Microsoft Windows NT versions 3.x and 4.0. Windows 2000-based domain controllers and servers use FRS to replicate system policies and logon scripts for Windows 2000-based and earlier clients. The File Replication service replaces the LAN Manager Replication (LMREPL) service.
- File Scripting Object
Abbreviated as FSO, In Microsoft Access the File Scripting Object is used to manage files.
- File System Object
Abbreviated as FSO, the File System Object is a tool commonly used to access the computer file system and also to manage file, folders and drives.
- File eXchange Protocol
File eXchange Protocol (FXP) allows you to copy files from one FTP server to another FTP server (two remote hosts) using an FXP client. FXP removes the middle step of transferring files from one FTP server to your local machine then to the second FTP server. The data transfer rate is also independent of your […]
