Peeping into the Collatz Conjecture


Khurshid Ahmad Bhat*

In the history of mathematics, there are number of conjectures, unsolved till date, Collatz Conjecture is one of them. Lother Collatz introduced a conjecture in which a series of numbers get generated called hailstone numbers, a long chain of numbers, all ended to 1. This conjecture may be considered true if the sequence would not either enter a repeating cycle or increase without bound. In this paper a tangible solution is given that anticipate that no such repeated sequence is possible that increases without bound. Hence support the truthfulness of Conjecture. May be it helps the mathematicians to achieve a pragmatic mode.
