Exploratory Approach for Fibonacci Numbers and Benford's Law

피보나치수와 벤포드법칙에 대한 탐색적 접근

Abstract

We know that the first digits sequence of fibonacci numbers obey Benford's law. For the sequence in which the first two numbers are the arbitrary integers and the recurrence relation $a_{n+2}=a_{n+1}+a_n$ is satisfied, we can find that the first digits sequence of this sequence obey Benford's law. Also, we can find the stucture of the first digits sequence of this sequence with the exploratory data analysis tools.
