Abstract

We discuss algebraic relations for reciprocal sums of Fibonacci and Lucas numbers. For a certain set of 12 such sums, we show that any two numbers are algebraically independent, and that any three are algebraically independent except for those in 22 exceptional triplets. We explicitly present algebraic relations for some of these exceptional cases.
