The Collatz problem, also known as 3n+1 problem, is a problem posed by the German mathematician Lothar Collatz in 1937 at the University of Hamburg: Does the Hailstone sequence always terminate (i.e. end in 1) for any value of n? Hailstone Sequence A 'Hailstone' sequence is defined as: For any pos…Manuel Vieda
