I am sorry for not having posted in a month. My schedule has been busy, mainly from some heavy projects in computer science courses.
For instance, one of our projects was to implement the above with fully functional logic circuits. If anyone is wondering, this diagram outlines the high-level design of a pipelined computer processor. We then wrote some assembly code to run on this processor, specifically to compute the stopping time of the hailstone function.
As a result of the CS workload, I haven’t had much time to do math—my math blog has not been updated since March.
Anyway, this has been my busiest semester yet at Cornell. Now that classes are over, I will get back into a weekly posting schedule.
