# Numerical Algorithms with Python

In the vast world of numerical algorithms, we dive into concepts and techniques aimed at manipulating and generating numbers. Within numerical algorithms, you can find solutions for problems such as interpolation, solving differential equations, numerical optimization, and more. In this section, we will explore numerical algorithms using the Python programming language with a series of in-depth articles.

## Number Generation

### Fibonacci: An Intriguing Number Sequence

IN-DEPTH ARTICLE

Fibonacci Series

The Fibonacci sequence is a sequence of numbers in which each term is the sum of the two previous ones: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, …We will explore different approaches to generate the Fibonacci sequence, including iterative ones and recursive. We will discuss the time complexities of each method and the situations where one outperforms the other.

### Prime Numbers: the Magic of Arithmetic

Prime numbers are natural numbers greater than 1 that are divisible only by 1 and themselves. Over the course of several articles we will explore the importance of prime numbers and their applications in cryptography and optimization algorithms. In the in-depth articles we will present algorithms for generating prime numbers, such as the Sieve of Eratosthenes and the Miller-Rabin primality test. We will analyze the complexity of these algorithms and discuss their practical applications.
