 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The Collatz function is as follows: F(x) = x/2 if x is even, otherwise F(x) = 3*x+1. It is conjectured that starting from any number, and repeatedly applying the function on its previous result, we will always reach 1. The d-value (or flight duration, A006577) is the number of steps needed to reach 1. The h-value (or flight height, A025586) is the maximum of the number's trajectory. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..30. Guo-Gang Gao, On consecutive numbers of the same height in the Collatz problem, Discrete Mathematics, Volume 112, pages 261-267, 1993. EXAMPLE a(3) = 108 because 108, 109 and 110 have same d-value (113) and same h-value (9232). And 108 is the smallest number starting such sequence of 3 consecutive positive integers with same d-value and same h-value. CROSSREFS Cf.
