This book contains nineteen papers from among the twenty-five papers presented at the Second International Conference on Fibonacci Numbers and Their Applications. These papers have been selected after a careful review by well known referee's in the field, and they range from elementary number theory to probability and statistics. The Fibonacci numbers are their unifying bond. It is anticipated that this book will be useful to research workers and graduate students interested in the Fibonacci numbers and their applications.
