There are many identities including Fibonacci numbers. However, few determinants of \(n\times n\) matrix which is equal to the Fibonacci number have been known. In 1974, Proskuryakov showed the first such an example in his Linear Algebra book, though it is believed that the first person is Lucas. Nevertheless, in 1875, Glaisher gave several determinants of matrices which are equal to the Bernoulli, Euler, Cauchy and more numbers. By studying Cameron’s operator in terms of determinants, we introduce the technique to produce many examples of \(n\times n\) matrix which is equal to the Fibonacci-like numbers.
