On the Collatz Conjecture

  •  Yao Moïse Blewoussi    


The Collatz conjecture (or Syracuse conjecture) states: all Syracuse sequences converge to 1. We present a Syracuse sequence, and we prove that the conjecture is true, first by using the fact that all convergent integer sequences are eventually constant. We then prove wrong 2 hypotheses: the case where the sequence tends to infinity, and the case where the sequence has no limit and is eventually periodic. We conclude by elimination, afterward.
