## Fibonacci Numbers: Also known as

According to some sources, the **Fibonacci sequence** is also known as Lamé's Sequence, after Gabriel Lamé.

However, this suggestion is difficult to corroborate.

The notation for the $n$th **Fibonacci number** is not universally standardised.

In much professional literature, $u_n$ is used.

$F_n$ tends to appear more in amateur publications, but $F_n$ is rapidly taking over as standard.

$F_n$ is the notation used in *The Fibonacci Quarterly*.
