Dear All,

As per Kant, all pure mathematics are synthetica priori.

On the contrary, analytic judgement are those where the predicate is contained in the subject.

If we consider the concept of recursive function, say Fibonacci series 0,1,2,3,5,8,13,21 expressed by: F n= F (n-1) + F (n-2) what we get is the earlier or next number by adding/subtracting the previous one.

Take otherwise Fibonacci series or recursive function, the result is contained in the subject.

In that case do we consider Fibonacci series analytic/synthetic?
