Phi

-- Constant: %phi %phi represents the so-called golden mean, (1 + sqrt(5))/2. The numeric value of %phi is the double-precision floating-point value 1.618033988749895d0.

fibtophi expresses Fibonacci numbers fib(n) in terms of %phi.

load(draw);
rho: 2/(3-cos(2*phi));
draw2d(nticks = 200, polar(rho,phi,0,2*%pi));

By default, Maxima does not know the algebraic properties of

     %phi.  After evaluating tellrat(%phi^2 - %phi - 1) and
     algebraic: true, ratsimp can simplify some expressions
     containing %phi.

Examples:

fibtophi expresses Fibonacci numbers fib(n) in terms of %phi.

          (%i1) fibtophi (fib (n));
                                     n             n

          (%i2) fib (n-1) + fib (n) - fib (n+1);
          (%o2)          - fib(n + 1) + fib(n) + fib(n - 1)
          (%i3) fibtophi (%);

          (%o3) - --------------------------- + -------------------
                          2 %phi - 1                2 %phi - 1

                                                %phi      - (1 - %phi)

By default, Maxima does not know the algebraic properties of

     %phi.  After evaluating tellrat (%phi^2 - %phi - 1) and
     algebraic: true, ratsimp can simplify some expressions
     containing %phi.

          (%i1) e : expand ((%phi^2 - %phi - 1) * (A + 1));
                           2                      2
          (%o1)        %phi  A - %phi A - A + %phi  - %phi - 1
          (%i2) ratsimp (e);
                            2                     2
          (%o2)        (%phi  - %phi - 1) A + %phi  - %phi - 1
          (%i3) tellrat (%phi^2 - %phi - 1);
                                      2
          (%o3)                  [%phi  - %phi - 1]
          (%i4) algebraic : true;
          (%o4)                         true
          (%i5) ratsimp (e);
          (%o5)                           0

There are also some inexact matches for phi. Try ?? phi to see them.

(%o1)                                true
