The standard definition using pattern matching

Fibonacci-ℕ :   
Fibonacci-ℕ 0 = 0
Fibonacci-ℕ (succ-ℕ 0) = 1
Fibonacci-ℕ (succ-ℕ (succ-ℕ n)) = (Fibonacci-ℕ (succ-ℕ n)) +ℕ (Fibonacci-ℕ n)

A definition using the induction principle of

The above definition of the Fibonacci sequence uses Agda's powerful pattern matching definitions. Below, we will give a definition of the Fibonacci sequence in terms of ind-ℕ.

The problem with defining the Fibonacci sequence using ind-ℕ, is that ind-ℕ doesn't give us a way to refer to both (F n) and (F (succ-ℕ n)). So, we have to give a workaround, where we store two values in the Fibonacci sequence at once.

The basic idea is that we define a sequence of pairs of integers, which will be consecutive Fibonacci numbers. This would be a function of type .

Such a function is easy to give with induction, using the map that takes a pair (m,n) to the pair (n,n+m). Starting the iteration with (0,1) we obtain the Fibonacci sequence by taking the first projection.

However, we haven't defined cartesian products or booleans yet. Therefore we mimic the above idea, using instead of .

shift-one :   (  )  (  )
shift-one n f = ind-ℕ n  x y  f x)

shift-two :     (  )  (  )
shift-two m n f = shift-one m (shift-one n f)

Fibo-zero-ℕ :   
Fibo-zero-ℕ = shift-two 0 1  x  0)

Fibo-succ-ℕ : (  )  (  )
Fibo-succ-ℕ f = shift-two (f 1) ((f 1) +ℕ (f 0))  x  0)

A 3-for-2 property of divisibility of Fibonacci numbers

We prove that if an two of the following three properties hold, then so does the third:

  1. d | Fibonacci-ℕ m
  2. d | Fibonacci-ℕ n
  3. d | Fibonacci-ℕ (m +ℕ n).
div-Fibonacci-add-ℕ :
  (d m n : )  div-ℕ d (Fibonacci-ℕ m)  div-ℕ d (Fibonacci-ℕ n) 
  div-ℕ d (Fibonacci-ℕ (m +ℕ n))
div-Fibonacci-add-ℕ d m zero-ℕ H1 H2 = H1
div-Fibonacci-add-ℕ d m (succ-ℕ n) H1 H2 =
    ( div-ℕ d)
    ( inv (Fibonacci-add-ℕ m n))
    ( div-add-ℕ d
      ( (Fibonacci-ℕ (succ-ℕ m)) *ℕ (Fibonacci-ℕ (succ-ℕ n)))
      ( (Fibonacci-ℕ m) *ℕ (Fibonacci-ℕ n))
      ( div-mul-ℕ (Fibonacci-ℕ (succ-ℕ m)) d (Fibonacci-ℕ (succ-ℕ n)) H2)
      ( tr
        ( div-ℕ d)
        ( commutative-mul-ℕ (Fibonacci-ℕ n) (Fibonacci-ℕ m))
        ( div-mul-ℕ (Fibonacci-ℕ n) d (Fibonacci-ℕ m) H1)))

If m | n, then d | F(m) implies d | F(n)

div-Fibonacci-div-ℕ :
  (d m n : )  div-ℕ m n  div-ℕ d (Fibonacci-ℕ m)  div-ℕ d (Fibonacci-ℕ n)
div-Fibonacci-div-ℕ d m .zero-ℕ (zero-ℕ , refl) H = div-zero-ℕ d
div-Fibonacci-div-ℕ d zero-ℕ .(k *ℕ zero-ℕ) (succ-ℕ k , refl) H =
    ( div-ℕ d)
    ( ap Fibonacci-ℕ (inv (right-zero-law-mul-ℕ (succ-ℕ k))))
    ( div-zero-ℕ d)
div-Fibonacci-div-ℕ d (succ-ℕ m) ._ (succ-ℕ k , refl) H =
  div-Fibonacci-add-ℕ d
    ( k *ℕ (succ-ℕ m))
    ( succ-ℕ m)
    ( div-Fibonacci-div-ℕ d
      ( succ-ℕ m)
      ( k *ℕ (succ-ℕ m))
      ( pair k refl)
      ( H))
    ( H)

Fibonacci-ℕ is an order preserving map on ℕ ordered by divisibility
