# Python Program: Fibonacci Series

One of the most well-known series in Mathematics, the Fibonacci Sequence is a sequence where each term is a sum of the two preceding terms, starting from 0 and 1. The sequence is named after the famous Italian mathematician Leonardo Pisano who introduced it to the West in his book Liber Abaci composed in AD 1202.

Generally, the sequence is denoted by $F_{n}$ where $n \geq 0$. Hence,

$F_{0} = 0$, $F_{1} = 1$, and for values of $n > 1$,

$F_{n} = F_{n-1} + F_{n-2}$

The sequence starts as: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, ...

Here is a simple Python program to print Fibonacci Numbers upto a given number of $n$ terms.

` ````
n = int(input("Number = "))
first = 0
second = 1
for i in range(0,n+1):
if(i <=1):
next = i
else:
next = first + second
first = second
second = next
if(i < n):
print(next,", ", end='')
else:
print(next)
```

Below is the generated Fibonacci sequence upto $F_{7}$

We can also construct a recursive function to print out Fibonacci Numbers as shown in the program below. We define a recursive function called `fibonacci()`

.

` ````
n = int(input("Number = "))
first = 0
second = 1
def fibonacci(m):
if(m <= 1):
return m
else:
return fibonacci(m-1)+fibonacci(m-2)
for i in range(0,n+1):
if(i < n):
print(fibonacci(i),", ", end='')
else:
print(fibonacci(i))
