Abstract This paper gives a generalization of Beta-nacci and Fibonacci sequences and the
general solution obtained is given in terms of Beta-Fibonacci numbers.

Keywords      Beta-nacci sequence, Fibonacci sequence.

§1. Preliminaries and introduction
The Fibonacci sequence, say {Fn }∞ is deﬁned recurrently by
n=0

Fn = Fn−1 + Fn−2 ,        for all n ≥ 2,                        (1)

with initial conditions

F0 = 1;      F1 = 1.

The general term of the Fibonacci sequence is
√     n+1                √          n+1
1      1+ 5             1       1− 5
Fn = √                      −√                            .

The Fibonacci sequence has been studied extensively and generalized in many ways. In [1]
Peter R. J. Asveld studied the class of recurrence relations

k
Gn = Gn−1 + Gn−2 +               αj nj                        (2)
j=0

with initial conditions

G0 = 1;      G1 = 1.

The main result of [1] consists of an expression for Gn in terms of the Fibonacci numbers
Fn and Fn−1 , and in the parameters α0 , α1 , ..., αk .
The Beta-nacci sequence, say {Bn }∞ is deﬁned recurrently by
n=0

Bn = Bn−1 + 2Bn−2 ,             for all n ≥ 2,                     (3)

with initial conditions

B0 = 1;     B1 = 1.

The general term of the Beta-nacci sequence is
