The process constructs a sequence starting with and iterating this process: if is even, compute , and if is odd, compute .[more]
Connect two successive numbers in such a sequence by an arrow to get a graph. Take all the sequences up to a maximum starting number to get the bigger graph shown here. A pair of numbers may be joined by several edges because the sequences from different starting numbers can overlap.[less]
