# Python Program for n-th Fibonacci number

Last Updated : 26 Jun, 2023

In mathematical terms, the sequence Fn of Fibonacci numbers is defined by the recurrence relation

Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2

With seed values

F0 = 0 and F1 = 1.

### Python Program for n-th Fibonacci number Using recursion

Here we will use recursion function. The code defines a function Fibonacci(n) that calculates the nth Fibonacci number recursively. It checks for invalid input and returns the Fibonacci number based on the base cases (0 and 1) or by recursively calling itself with reduced values of n. The driver program prints the 10th Fibonacci number.

## Python3

 # Function for nth Fibonacci number def Fibonacci(n):    if n<= 0:        print("Incorrect input")    # First Fibonacci number is 0    elif n == 1:        return 0    # Second Fibonacci number is 1    elif n == 2:        return 1    else:        return Fibonacci(n-1)+Fibonacci(n-2) # Driver Program print(Fibonacci(10))

Output
34

Time Complexity: O(2N)
Auxiliary Space: O(N)

### Python Program for n-th Fibonacci number Using Dynamic Programming

The code defines a function fibonacci(n) that calculates the nth Fibonacci number using dynamic programming. It initializes a list FibArray with the first two Fibonacci numbers (0 and 1). The function checks if the Fibonacci number for n is already present in FibArray and returns it. Otherwise, it calculates the Fibonacci number recursively, stores it in FibArray for future use, and returns the calculated value. The driver program prints the 9th Fibonacci number using this approach.

## Python3

 # Function for nth fibonacci number - Dynamic Programming# Taking 1st two fibonacci numbers as 0 and 1 FibArray = [0, 1] def fibonacci(n):    if n<0:        print("Incorrect input")    elif n<= len(FibArray):        return FibArray[n-1]    else:        temp_fib = fibonacci(n-1)+fibonacci(n-2)        FibArray.append(temp_fib)        return temp_fib # Driver Program print(fibonacci(9))

Output
21

Time Complexity: O(N)
Auxiliary Space: O(N)

## Python3

 # Function for nth fibonacci number - Space Optimisation# Taking 1st two fibonacci numbers as 0 and 1 def fibonacci(n):    a = 0    b = 1    if n < 0:        print("Incorrect input")    elif n == 0:        return a    elif n == 1:        return b    else:        for i in range(2, n):            c = a + b            a = b            b = c        return b # Driver Program print(fibonacci(9))

Output
21

Time Complexity: O(N)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

### Python Program for n-th Fibonacci number Using Using Arrays

The code defines a function fibonacci(n) that calculates the nth Fibonacci number by creating an array data containing the Fibonacci sequence up to the nth number. It initializes data with the first two Fibonacci numbers (0 and 1) and then iteratively calculates the subsequent numbers. The function returns the nth number from data. The driver program prints the 9th Fibonacci number using this approach.

## Python3

 # creating an array in the function to find the#nth number in fibonacci series. [0, 1, 1, ...]def fibonacci(n):    if n <= 0:        return "Incorrect Output"    data = [0, 1]    if n > 2:        for i in range(2, n):            data.append(data[i-1] + data[i-2])    return data[n-1] # Driver Programprint(fibonacci(9))

Output
21

Time Complexity: O(N)
Auxiliary Space: O(N)

Explanation:

[0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144]
As we know that the Fibonacci series is the sum of the previous two terms, so if we enter 12 as the input in the program, so we should get 144 as the output. And that is what is the result.

### Python Program for n-th Fibonacci number Using Direct Formula

The formula for finding the n-th Fibonacci number is as follows:

## Python3

 # To find the n-th Fibonacci Number using formulafrom math import sqrt # import square-root method from math librarydef nthFib(n):    res = (((1+sqrt(5))**n)-((1-sqrt(5)))**n)/(2**n*sqrt(5))    # compute the n-th fibonacci number    print(int(res),'is',str(n)+'th fibonacci number')    # format and print the number     # driver codenthFib(12) # This code is contributed by Kush Mehta

Output
144 is 12th fibonacci number

Time Complexity: O(1)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

### Python Program for n-th Fibonacci number Using power of the matrix {{1, 1}, {1, 0}}

This is another O(n) that relies on the fact that if we n times multiply the matrix M = {{1,1},{1,0}} to itself (in other words calculate power(M, n)), then we get the (n+1)th Fibonacci number as the element at row and column (0, 0) in the resultant matrix.
The matrix representation gives the following closed expression for the Fibonacci numbers:

## Python

 # Helper function that multiplies# 2 matrices F and M of size 2*2,# and puts the multiplication# result back to F[][] # Helper function that calculates# F[][] raise to the power n and# puts the result in F[][]# Note that this function is# designed only for fib() and# won't work as general# power functiondef fib(n):    F = [[1, 1],         [1, 0]]    if (n == 0):        return 0    power(F, n - 1)    return F[0][0]  def multiply(F, M):  x = (F[0][0] * M[0][0] + F[0][1] * M[1][0])  y = (F[0][0] * M[0][1] + F[0][1] * M[1][1])  z = (F[1][0] * M[0][0] + F[1][1] * M[1][0])  w = (F[1][0] * M[0][1] + F[1][1] * M[1][1])  F[0][0] = x  F[0][1] = y  F[1][0] = z  F[1][1] = w  def power(F, n):    M = [[1, 1], [1, 0]]    # n - 1 times multiply the    # matrix to {{1,0},{0,1}}    for i in range(2, n + 1):        multiply(F, M)  # Driver Codeif __name__ == "__main__":    n = 9    print(fib(n)) # This code is contributed by Yash Agarwal

Output
34

Time Complexity: O(n)
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

#### Optimization of above methods

W can optimized to work in O(Logn) time complexity. We can do recursive multiplication to get power(M, n) in the previous method.

Steps:

1. To optimize method 6, we need to just change the power function of the method 6.
2. In method 6, the power function takes O(n) time for which the time complexity of the whole program becomes O(n).
3. In this method, we modify the power function using recursion, calling (F and n//2) which makes n half at each calling and achieve time complexity of O(log N).

## Python3

 # Nth Fibonacci Number using# optimized power of the matrix method # function that returns nth# Fibonacci number  def fib(n):    F = [[1, 1],         [1, 0]]    if (n == 0):        return 0    power(F, n - 1)     return F[0][0]  def multiply(F, M):    x = (F[0][0] * M[0][0] +         F[0][1] * M[1][0])    y = (F[0][0] * M[0][1] +         F[0][1] * M[1][1])    z = (F[1][0] * M[0][0] +         F[1][1] * M[1][0])    w = (F[1][0] * M[0][1] +         F[1][1] * M[1][1])     F[0][0] = x    F[0][1] = y    F[1][0] = z    F[1][1] = w # Optimized version of# power() in method 6  def power(F, n):    if(n == 0 or n == 1):        return    M = [[1, 1],         [1, 0]]     power(F, n // 2)    multiply(F, F)     if (n % 2 != 0):        multiply(F, M)  # Driver Codeif __name__ == "__main__":    n = 5    print(fib(n))

Output
5

Time Complexity: O(log N)
Auxiliary Space: O(log N), if we consider the function call stack size, otherwise O(1).
