Dual Nature of Orbits of the Divide-or-Choose 2 Rule: A Quadratic Collatz-type Recursion

21 May 2020  ·  Sedaghat Hassan ·

We obtain a complete characterization of all orbits of a quadratic Collatz-type recursion called the divide-or-choose-2 rule. Each orbit either ends in a cycle whose period depends on the initial value or it goes to infinity... We specify which initial values generate periodic orbits, and also show that all other initial values generate orbits that go to infinity. read more
