Took me long enough,  but here is the definitive proof to the collatz conjecture.   Anyone able to endorse me to publish on arxiv?

Why not submit it to a math journal, if you are confident it is correct?

Have you had any other mathematicians check it?

I've had a few of my math major friends look, they're also confident it is true.   How would i publish to a math journal?  I dont even know where to start

I do know it would be in Number Theory

This would be really big if your proof holds. If I were you, I would try publishing at arxiv.org...and don't forget to mention SFN :D 
Unfortunately I'm not equipped enough to judge your work.

My goal is to publish on arxiv, but of course I need to be endorsed.   In order to be endorsed, i need to be recognized by someone who does publish in the field.  However, I doubt many would actually take me and my proof seriously considering the conjecture that I indeed did prove.   Especially due to the lack of math publishing and non math major degree status.   I have my bachelors in science, with minors in both math and biology.  But that in itself wouldn't be enough to be noticed.

I have emailed both my old undergraduate faculty and Dr. Lagarias, as he has written a lot about the history of the conjecture and I believe he would be the most knowledgeable and interested in my work. 

uhh, sorry for the delay.  My office got invaded by a wood wasp. I promptly got up and closed the door and , not so promptly, got a vacuum, sucked him up, and transported him to the outdoors.

@Bignose, @ajb - these guys could help you. Bignose is a resident math expert here at sfn and ajb was/is a one but moved to another country and stopped posting a while back. I’m sure sooner or later someone competent will come to this thread and look at your work.

We got mosquitos here right now, I can’t fall asleep while I’m hearing their annoying buzzing sound, I’m currently running around the bedroom trying to get rid of them (00:40 Sunday)
