A226613 a(n) is the conjectured number of primitive cycles of positive integers under iteration by the Collatz-like 3x+k function, where n=floor(k/3)+1. 10

COMMENTS

A cycle is called primitive if its elements are not a common multiple of the elements of another cycle.

The 3x+k function T_k is defined by T_k(x) = x/2 if x is even, (3x+k)/2 if x is odd, where k is odd.

For primitive cycles, GCD(k,6)=1.
