The golden section numbers are ±0·61803 39887… and ±1·61803 39887…
The golden string is 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 …
a sequence of 0s and 1s that is closely related to the Fibonacci numbers and the golden section.
There is a large amount of information here on the Fibonacci Numbers and related series and the on the Golden section, so if all you want is a quick introduction then the first link takes you to an introductory page on the Fibonacci numbers and where they appear in Nature.
