Abstract

The Pascal–Fibonacci (PF) numbers for a given Fibonacci number sum to give the values of that Fibonacci number. Individual PF numbers are members of one of the triangular, tetrahedral or pentagonal series or have factors in common with the pyramidal or other geometric series. For composite numbers, partial sums of PF numbers can yield a factor, while prime Fibonacci numbers are detected with sums of squares.
