Hello, The following event may be of interest to you: Solving Linear Recurrence Relations Using Generating Functions Tuesday, September 26, 2017 Recurrence relations arise in many fields of study. To solve a recurrence relation is to find an explicit formula for the numbers of the sequence generated by the recurrence. Informally, an ordinary generating function is a power series whose coefficients are the terms ofa given sequence. In this talk, we will introduce the method of generating functions for solving linear recurrence relations with constant coefficients and apply this method to solve the Fibonacci recurrencerelation.
