The sequence of Fibonacci words in \(\{a,b\}^*\) is defined by \(f_ 0=a\), \(f_ 1=ab\), and \(f_{n+2}=f_{n+1}f_ n\) for \(n\geq 0\). This beautiful survey presents a number of combinatorial properties in relation to the subwords of Fibonacci words as well as basic arithmetic operations in the Fibonacci number system.
