  1. The Fibonacci Sequence and the Nature of Mathematical Discovery: A Semiotic Perspective.Marcel Danesi - 2005 - Sign Systems Studies 33 (1):53-72.
    This study looks at the relation between mathematical discovery and semiosis, focusing on the famous Fibonacci sequence. The serendipitous discovery of this sequence as the answer to a puzzle designed by Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci to illustrate the efficiency of the decimal number system is one of those episodes in human history which show how serendipity, semiosis, and discovery are intertwined. As such, the sequence has significant implications for the study of creative semiosis, since it suggests that symbols are hardly (...)
