A strange anomaly in 3n+1
Posted:
Jan 21, 2013 10:27 PM


Where (n) is odd and > (1)
2^n1 seed will always pass through (5) on its return too 4,2,1,4,2,1... The only exception being 2^65 1
Checked through the first 100 odd (n) seeds where the last odd tested was 2^201 1 and the only one that does not pass through (5) is 2^651.
Where (n) is odd and > 201, are there other 2^n 1 seeds that do not pass through (5) like 2^651?
