In this paper, the Laplace transform and various matrix operations are applied to the characteristic polynomial of the Fibonacci numbers. From this is generated some properties of the Jacobsthal numbers, including triangles where the row sums are known sequences. In turn these produce some new properties.


  • Recurrence relations
  • Laplace transform
  • Fibonacci sequence
  • Jacobsthal numbers
  • Simson’s formula
