As a pretense, I'm a programmer trying to understand practicle use of
the Fibonacci search.
What I am trying to understand is how exactly to use the following
equation for intializing the Fibonacci search.
Let x=a+(1-g_n)(b-a) and y=a+g_N(b-a)
Evaluate f(x) and f(y) and set n=N
Here's my delima, I don't understand where those variables come from
or how to assign them.
I appoligize for my ignorance with this situation but I'm trying to
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
