In Python Fibonacci Series, next range uses the total of the previous two numbers. For example: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 , 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 and so on. Fibonacci series starts from 0 and 1.

Fibonacci application is used in the Stock Market, Trading, Banking Application, Data structure, Graphs and much more.

To understand this example, you should have knowledge of following Python programming topics:

The sequence Fn of Fibonacci numbers is defined by the recurrence relation:`F`

_{n}` = F`

_{n-1}` + F`

_{n-2}

There are two ways to write the Fibonacci Series program in Python:

- Fibonacci Series using Loop
- Fibonacci Series using recursion

## Source Code: Fibonacci Series using Loop

In Loop, we are using while loop and counter for generating Fibonacci Series. In while loop, we are adding two numbers and swapping numbers.

nNum = 10 num = 0 num1 = 0 num2 = 1 count = 0 while (count<nNum): print(num1) num = num1 +num2 num1 = num2 num2 = num count +=1

## Source Code: Fibonacci Series using Recursion (Recursive Function)

In Recursive Function, we are using formula ** F _{n} = F_{n-1} + F_{n-2}**. We are also iterating using

`for`

loop. In each iterate, we are calling function `recur_fibo()`

.# Recurrence Relation # Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2 def recur_fibo(n): if n <= 1: return n else: return(recur_fibo(n-1)+recur_fibo(n-2)) nNum = 10 for i in range(nNum): print(recur_fibo(i))
