# Golden Matrix Ring Mod $$p$$

The author uses the golden matrix ring $$Z(A)$$ generated by $$A= \left[ \begin{array}{cccc} 0 & 1 \\ 1 & 1 \end{array} \right]$$ to prove certain identities involving Fibonacci numbers. In particular, he shows that every prime divides some (and hence infinitely many) Fibonacci numbers, and also verifies some generalizations and extensions of such results.
