This book contains 43 papers form among the 55 papers presented at the Sixth International Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and Their Applications which was held at Washington State University, Pullman, Washington, from July 18-22, 1994. These papers have been selected after a careful review by well known referees in the field, and they range from elementary number theory to probability and statistics. The Fibonacci numbers and recurrence relations are their unifying bond. It is anticipated that this book, like its five predecessors, will be useful to research workers and graduate students interested in the Fibonacci numbers and their applications.
