The Collatz Conjecture is an 80 year-old open Math problem. Recently, I made a remarkable discovery of the long sought visual pattern in the conjecture. This never-before-seen visual pattern led me to two significant results: (a) a natural proof that the Collatz conjecture has no non-trivial cycles, and (2) a direct link between the Collatz conjecture and prime numbers.
My question: If you have proven a major unresolved question in mathematics but you are out of touch with university professors, or someone who can endorse you on arXiv, how can you get your paper published and noticed by professional mathematicians?
My paper can be found here. I’m currently not interested in publishing in a journal, unless someone wants to pick up that challenge with me.
