By hoainiem, history, 15 months ago, I have a problem about fibonacci numbers: ==================

## f[i] = f[i-1] + f[i-2] (i > 2)

how can i calculate f[f[n]] mod M (n, M <= 10^9). anyone can help me? Comments (11)

•  » » 15 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 3 →   i don't think these 2 problems are similar. your problem is calculate the nth fibonacci number , which can be solved by matrix multiplication. but we can't use it to solve my problem because f[n] can be very large, and we can't use modules because (f[f[n]]) mod m is not equal to (f[f[n]mod m] ) mod m
 » I guess you can try to find pisano period of M, then calculate f[n] mod P(m), where P(i) — pisano period of modulo i, and then calculate the final answer mod M.Though I'm not sure how to calculate pisano period for such big M, you can try to look for some optimizations here.(also google is your big friend here)
•  » » thank you very much. i've tried to google it but i can't find any way to calculate pisano period for m <= 1^9
