Collatz Conjecture Calculator

I made a project that calculates Collatz Conjecture.
Type any number and it will calculate it.

I know. If the number is too large it clips off the screen. I'm working on fixing that.

The Collatz Conjecture is simple.
You pick any positive interger, then

If its odd:
$$n$$ $$=$$ $$3n$$ $$+$$ $$1$$
If its even:
$$n$$ $$=$$ $$n/2$$
The conjecture is, is that the number will always fall to 4 then get stuck in the loop 4, 2, 1, 4, 2, 1 $$...$$ While unproven, 295,147,905,179,352,825,856 numbers have been checked by brute force as of 2020.

Neat :slight_smile:

I watched a video once where they showed another 2d visualization: The Simplest Math Problem No One Can Solve - Collatz Conjecture - YouTube. If the result of 3n+1 is odd, you turn anticlockwise, if it's even, you turn clockwise.

p.s.: maybe let us know if you manage to get scrolling done. Would love to see that :slight_smile:

Your projects is nice too!
Would like to see an ask block tho so that people don't have to go digging arround in the code to try it out.

See, Jens, if we don't have bignums we can't contribute to this effort! :~P
