Hailstone sequences

  • Definition: they have the property that they often rise and fall in unpredictable patterns, which is somehow analogous to the process that forms hailstones.

    Source: Reges & Stepp, 2007

  • Example: Example sentence for context: "A hailstone sequence is a sequence of numbers in which each value x is followed by either: (3x+1), if x is odd, (x/2), if x is even."
