Hello, seqfans.
I conjectured the following sequence is divergent.
> x(n)=[a*x(n-1)+b]/p^r,
> a, b are real number, [x] is integer part of x,
> p is prime, p^r is the highest power of p dividing [a*x(n-1)+b]
x(0), p, a, b = 107, 2, 1.6, 1.1
Don Reble calculated x(2,000,000) = 852756...564079; it has 46892
digits.
The conjecture seems to be correct. But I don't know how to prove it.
On the cases {1.0<b<=1.2}, I observed the same phenomena as above.
If anyone proved it, tell me it.
a table :
x(0)=3, p=2, b=1.1
a -------- 1.5 1.599 1.59999 1.6
1.60001 1.601 1.7
period ---- 1 20 172 divergent? 87
