A Trigonometry Approach to Balancing Numbers and Their Related Sequences

  • Prasanta Kumar Ray IIIT Bhubaneswar India


The balancing numbers satisfy the second order linear homogeneous dierence equation Bn+1 = 6Bn - Bn-1, on the other hand the Fibonacci numbers are solution of the second order linear homogeneous dierence equation Fn+1 = Fn + Fn-1; where Bn and Fn denote the nth balancing number and nth Fibonacci number respectively. In a paper, Smith introduce Fibonometry in connection with a dierential equation called Fibonometric dierential equation. In this study, we first introduce the balancometric dierential equation and then obtain the balancometric functions as solutions of this equation.
