Hailstone Path

Description:How would you like to win several thousand dollars (!) and win eternal mathematical fame on a par with that of Pierre de Fermat? All you have to do is prove (or disprove) "Ulam's Conjecture", also known as the 3x+1 Problem, and the Collatz Sequence, and the Hailstone Path, and Wondrous Numbers, and the Syracuse Algorithm, and many more monikers too maudlin to mention. Includes a System RPL program that returns the Syracuse Algorithm "hailstone path distance" between X and 1.
