David Hilbert: The Architect of Modern Mathematics

“The conviction of the solvability of every mathematical problem is a powerful incentive to the worker. We hear within us the perpetual call: There is the problem. Seek its solution. You can find it by pure reason, for in mathematics there is no ignorabimus.” — David Hilbert.

A Brief Analysis of the Collatz Conjecture

Algorithm for the Collatz Conjecture. “In short the Collatz problem is simple enough that anyone can understand it, and yet relates not just to number theory (as described in other answers) but to issues of decidability, chaos, and the foundations of mathematics and of computation. That’s about as good as it gets for a problemContinue reading “A Brief Analysis of the Collatz Conjecture”
