A weighted extension of Fibonacci numbers

(14 pages)

Abstract. We extend Fibonacci numbers with arbitrary weights and generalize a dozen Fibonacci identities. As a special case, we propose an elliptic extension which extends the q-Fibonacci polynomials appearing in Schur's work. The proofs of most of the identities are combinatorial, extending the proofs given by Benjamin and Quinn, and in the q case, by Garrett. Some identities are proved by telescoping.
