Fibonacci sequences in finite groups. (English) Zbl 0758.20006
A $k$-nacci sequence in a finite group $G$ is a sequence of group elements $x\sb 0,x\sb 1,\dots,x\sb n,\dots$ for which, given an initial generating set $x\sb 0,\dots,x\sb{j-1}$ for $G$, each element is defined by $$x\sb n=\cases x\sb 0x\sb 1\cdots x\sb{n-1}&\text{for $j\le n<k$}\\x\sb{n-k}x\sb{n-k+1}\cdots x\sb{n-1}&\text{for $n\ge k$}.\endcases$$ A $k$-nacci sequence certainly reflects the structure of $G$. A finite group $G$ is called $k$-nacci sequenceable if there exists a $k$-nacci sequence of $G$ such that every element of $G$ appears in the sequence. It is shown that a $k$-nacci sequence in a finite group $G$ is simply periodic. This leads to a complete description of the 2-nacci sequenceable groups. A 2-nacci sequenceable group is cyclic.
