Project IV, 2017-2018
Continued fractions
Anna Felikson and Pavel Tumarkin
Description:A continued fraction is an expression of the form
Continued fractions have been studied since at least 1572 when R. Bombelli, and later P. Cataldi, used them to obtain approximations to √13 and √18, respectively. Since then continued fractions found their numerous connections and applications in
In particular, continued fractions provide relations between different domains of mathematics. Anna Felikson will supervise in Michaelmas and Pavel Tumarkin in Epiphany. |
Prerequisites and corequisites: Algebra II is a prerequisite. Geometry III/IV would be useful as a corequisite. |
