The Millin
Series. When I published my first
mathematical result as an Advanced Problem in the Fibonacci
Quarterly (Problem H237, 1974), my name was misread as D. A. Millin. The name was corrected
when a solution was printed but it seems the misread name persists.
To read about the Millin series, see
this,
this,
this,
this,
this, and
this.
A computer generated proof of this identity is reported
here.
There is a YouTube video describing a proof.
My own proof is available.
