PDF### Abstract

The aim of this paper is to give an algebraic independence result for the two infinite products involving the Lucas sequences of the first and second kind. As a consequence, we derive that the two infinite products Πk=1∞(1+1/F2k) and Πk=1∞(1+1/L2k) are algebraically independent over ℚ, where {Fn}n≥0 and {Ln}n≥0 are the Fibonacci sequence and its Lucas companion, respectively.
