Extensions and Restrictions of Fibonacci Tilings

Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar

Meeting Details

For more information about this meeting, contact Barbara Baum.

Speaker: Matthew Katz, Department of Mathematics, The Pennsylvania State University

Abstract: We will look at two domino-square tiling problems related to the Fibonacci Numbers. First, we will look at colored tilings on $2 \times N$ boards. Then, we will look at tilings on $1 \times N$ boards with a restriction on the way it is tiled. With each, I will present a family of recurrence relations and combinatorial proofs.
