A Deduction of the Golden Spiral Equation via Powers of the Golden Ratio ?
Zahn, MaurĂ­cio
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v48 n6 p963-971 2017
This paper presents an interesting deduction of the Golden Spiral equation in a suitable polar coordinate system. For this purpose, the concepts of Golden Ratio and Golden Rectangle, and a significant result for the calculation of powers of the Golden Ratio ? using terms of the Fibonacci sequence are mentioned. Finally, various geometrical considerations that help us deduce the sought equation are presented.
