[Math.]  Let f be a function f: N®N, where is N is the natural numbers, defined by: f(n+1) = f(n)/2 if f(n) is even and f(n+1) = 3f(n)+1 if f(n) is odd. It is conjectured that, for any seed value f(0), the sequence f(0), f(1), f(2),… will always end in 1, 4, 2,… which repeats infinitely. The conjecture is called the “(3n+1) problem”.
