Collatz Problem and Conjecture. a Generalization of the Problem

Authors: Martiros Khurshudyan

The aim of this article is presents an open problem of Mathematics. We will talk and present shortly Collatz problem and conjecture to make clear our motivation for new problem. Introduction to the original Collatz problem is given as in [1],[2],[3],[4]. From our point of view a very properly introduction to the main problem. A genaralization is proposed as well as three questions are asked to a reader at the end of article, after definition of our problem. We thought, it is possible to develop a mathematical game based on Collatz problem. We leave this idea for future works.
