I'll start a new thread here to distinguish from Kirby's original thread about python and function composition.

Here are Dave Renfro's posted references:

http://www.ams.org/bookstore/pspdf/mbk-78-prev.pdf

Here's another:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDAQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.sfsu.edu%2Fmeredith%2F301%2FPapers%2FFinalDraft_Hammett.pdf&ei=5xBlU9XDNKipsQTn04CwCA&usg=AFQjCNGU2OEbnz9n2yWtzEownXJRhjoeUQ&bvm=bv.65788261,d.cWc

I'll be writing a post about a certain fascination I have with what one might call "playing 3 against 2". The Collatz function seems to be yet another example such.

Cheers,
