## 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”
