And do you remember the Fibonacci sequence from school?
We denote the n-th term of the Fibonacci sequence by [F.sub.n] and the Binet form of [F.sub.n] is [[alpha].sup.n] - [[beta].sup.n]/[alpha] - [beta], where [alpha] = 1 + [square root of 5]/2 and [beta] = 1 - [square root of 5]/2.

These convolutions were introduced in [3] for Fibonacci and Lucas numbers and studied in many recent papers, for example, [4-9], also with their extensions to Fibonacci, Lucas, and Chebyshev polynomials.
