**Lothar Collatz Conjecture**. The testimonies of his students as well as his own notebooks document Collatz working problems of a similar nature as early as 1932 Lagarias 2010. It is also known as the conjecture the Ulam conjecture the Kakutanis problem the Thwaites conjecture or the Syracuse problem 13.

The testimonies of his students as well as his own notebooks document Collatz working problems of a similar nature as early as 1932 Lagarias 2010. The textitCollatzs conjecture is an unsolved problem in mathematics. Start with any positive integer n.

### Collatz himself lays no claim to the problem but does state that he.

Conjectures arise when a certain pattern is noticed for many cases. It is an equation or a statement of the problem that starts with a positive integer. The great unsolved question in mathematics is to prove that this sequence will reach 1 for all positive integer initial values. The Collatz conjecture is tantalizing.
