A given N is at an X,Y position in the triangle according to where row number N of the Wythoff array "precurses" back to. Each Wythoff row is a Fibonacci recurrence. Starting from the pair of values in the first and second columns of row N it can be run in reverse by
F[i-1] = F[i+i] - F[i]
It can be shown that such a reverse always reaches a pair Y and X with Y>=1 and 0<=X<Y, hence making the triangular X,Y arrangement above.
N=7 WythoffArray row 7 is 17,28,45,73,... go backwards from 17,28 by subtraction 11 = 28 - 17 6 = 17 - 11 5 = 11 - 6 1 = 6 - 5 4 = 5 - 1 stop on reaching 4,1 which is Y=4,X=1 with Y>=1 and 0<=X<Y
Conversely a coordinate pair X,Y is reckoned as the start of a Fibonacci style recurrence,
F[i+i] = F[i] + F[i-1] starting F[1]=Y, F[2]=X
Iterating these values gives a row of the Wythoff array (Math::PlanePath::WythoffArray) after some initial iterations. The N value at X,Y is the row number of the Wythoff array which is reached. Rows are numbered starting from 1. For example,
Y=4,X=1 sequence: 4, 1, 5, 6, 11, 17, 28, 45, ... row 7 of WythoffArray: 17, 28, 45, ... so N=7 at Y=4,X=1
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::PlanePath for the behaviour common to all path classes.
