March 09, 2012 matrix and fibonacci  

 
The following is a matrix implementation of the fibonacci algorithm: int fib(int n) { int M[2][2] = {{1,0},{0,1}} for (int i = 1; i < n; i++) M = M * {{1,1},{1,0}} return M[0][0]; } problem is I don't really understand how matrix multiplication works so i cannot translate it to an equivalent solution in D. Thank for you assistance in advance. newcomer[bob]

I attempted the following but it does not work:
int fib(int n)
ulong[2][2] M = [[1,0], [0,1]];
ulong[2][2] C = [[1,1], [1,0]];
foreach (i; 0 .. n) {
M[0][0] = M[0][0] * C[0][0] + M[0][0] * C[0][1];
M[0][1] = M[0][1] * C[0][1] + M[0][1] * C[1][1];
M[1][0] = M[0][1] * C[0][0] + M[1][1] * C[0][1];
M[1][1] = M[1][1] * C[0][1] + M[1][1] * C[1][1];
}
return M[0][0];
}
any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks,
Bob

Turns out that this this is an algorithm for calculating the
powers of two up to 2^63. I still cannot find how to modify it to
produce the fibonacci sequence though. Any advice would be
appreciated.
Thanks,

The idea is not that bad but it contains a bug:
Once you modify M[0][1] in the second step of your loop, its changed content is plugged into the third step. You might simply save the contents of M in 4 additional variables and then use these to fill M again (with the result of M*C).
In fact it suffices to store three values as all matrices M (and C) are symmetric, that is, M[0][1] == M[1][0]. But I recommend to do this *after* you made the current version work.

Thanks very much for the assist. All three of these methods
though, seem to have a bug. fib(), fi() and f() all produce the
same incorrect result which for lack of better word I'll call an
"off by one" bug. A call to any of these functions with any
integer value between 2 and 44 yields the return value of the
next higher integer, while 45 overflows. For example, 2 => 2, 10
=> 89, and 15 => 987 which are the actual values for 3, 11 and 16.
Thanks,
Bob

I just start the sequence from 1, because a quick glance at your implementation showed that it starts from 1. But it seems like actually it would produce the sequence 1,1,1,2,3,... > fib(), fi() and f() all produce the > same incorrect result which for lack of better word I'll call an > "off by one" bug.

But the assertions are a little too tight, 46 would be the first one that does not work. > For example, 2 => 2, 10 > => 89, and 15 => 987 which are the actual values for 3, 11 and 16. > > Thanks, > Bob > Probably this is what you want then: // simple 2x2 matrix type alias int[2][2] Mat; // 2x2 matrix multiplication Mat matmul(Mat a, Mat b){ return [[a[0][0]*b[0][0]+a[0][1]*b[1][0], a[0][0]*b[0][1]+a[0][1]*b[1][1]], [a[1][0]*b[0][0]+a[1][1]*b[1][0], a[0][1]*b[0][1]+a[1][1]*b[1][1]]]; } // implementation of your algorithm int fib(int n)in{assert(n>=0 && n<47);}body{ if(!n) return 0; int M[2][2] = [[1,0],[0,1]]; int F[2][2] = [[1,1],[1,0]]; foreach (i; 1..n) M = matmul(F,M); return M[0][0]; } // faster way of computing matrix power int fi(int n)in{assert(n>=0 && n<47);}body{ if(!n) return 0; Mat M = [[1,0],[0,1]]; Mat F = [[1,1],[1,0]]; for(n;n;n>>=1){ if(n&1) M = matmul(F,M); F = matmul(F,F); } return M[0][0]; } // closed form derived from basis transform to eigenbasis int f(int n)in{assert(n>=0 && n<47);}body{ enum sqrt5=sqrt(5.0); return cast(int)((((1+sqrt5)/2)^^n((1sqrt5)/2)^^n)/sqrt5); }
