 A226679 Record-breaking values, for increasing k = A226630(n), of the conjectured number of primitive cycles of positive integers under iteration by the Collatz-like 3x-k function. 3

 OFFSET 1,1 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. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..7. CROSSREFS k = A226680(n). Cf.
