TraceAbove

 TraceAboveis an option for Trace and related functions which specifies whether to include evaluation chains which contain the evaluation chain containing the pattern form sought.
• includes the first and last expressions in all evaluation chains within which the evaluation chain containing form occurs.
• includes all expressions in these evaluation chains.
• TraceAbove->{backward, forward} allows you to specify separately which expressions to include in the backward and forward directions.
• Using TraceAbove, you can see the complete paths by which expressions matching form arose during an evaluation.
A recursive definition for finding Fibonacci numbers:
Show only what sums of fib are encountered:
Show the beginning of the evaluation chain that leads to each sum of fib :
Show the entire evaluation chain that leads to each sum of fib:
