Abstract: Fibonacci is an Italian mathematician in the 13th century, whose famous Liber Abaci (1202 first edition, 1228 reprint) is the Encyclopedia of Mathematics in Europe in the late Middle Ages. In the Liber Abaci (1202), Fibonacci introduces the so-called modus Indorum (method of the Indians), today known as Arabic numerals. The Leonardo Fibonacci timeline, an interactive 'Leonardo Fibonacci' timeline on Timetoast. Amazingly, the number of parts on a plant, the branching arrangements and the spirals of seed heads often follow the Fibonacci sequence. In 1202, he wrote a book called Liber Abaci in which he gives name to the number sequence. Fibonacci subsequently travelled broadly, where he learnt from mathematicians of different cultures. The book advocated numeration with the digits 0–9 and place value. The sequence was named after an Italian mathematician known as Leonardo of Pisa (or Leonardo de Fibonacci). In Liber Abaci Fibonacci discussed mathematical problems and calculations. Timeline created by spillarisetti in History.
