I often have to generate Lucas numbers so I created this simple online utility that does it for me. It lets you generate however many Lucas numbers you need starting from any position or value. It works in the browser and is powered by alien technology from the future.

_{12}. The 12th Lucas number is 322 so the series starts from this number. We generate 10 terms and separate them by the newline.

_{n}that is a Lucas number. This value is 18 so the sequence starts from this value. This tool calculates 30 sequence values and separates them with a semicolon.

18; 29; 47; 76; 123; 199; 322; 521; 843; 1364; 2207; 3571; 5778; 9349; 15127; 24476; 39603; 64079; 103682; 167761; 271443; 439204; 710647; 1149851; 1860498; 3010349; 4870847; 7881196; 12752043; 20633239

_{100}and find the next 20 sequence members. The 100th Lucas number is huge as L

_{n}is very close to 1.61

^{n}(or more precisely φ

^{n}). In this case, L

_{100}is about 1.61

^{100}. This number has 21 digits in base-10 and 18 digits in base-16.

## How Does This Lucas Number Generator Work?

This Lucas number generator works entirely in your browser and is written in JavaScript. It starts the sequence by creating two variables `lucasPrev`

and `lucasCurrent`

, and initializing them to `2`

and `1`

, which are the first two Lucas numbers. It also creates an empty `terms`

array that will hold the computed Lucas numbers. Each next Lucas number is calculated as a sum of `lucasPrev`

and `lucasCurrent`

. To generate `count`

terms (specified in options), it creates a `while()`

loop that keeps adding the last two Lucas values together until it finds the `start`

position or value (specified in options). At this moment it starts `terms.push()`

ing the Lucas numbers to the `terms`

array. The `while()`

loop keeps doing this until `terms.length`

is less than `count`

(sequence length; specified in options). When `terms.length`

reaches `count`

, the loop breaks and it runs base conversion code on the `terms`

array and calls the `terms.join(separator)`

function that joins all Lucas numbers by the `separator`

character. This function returns a string that is then printed to your screen.
