# Any special class of numbers other than 2^n for which Collatz is true?

The title says it all. Are there any special class of numbers other than $2^n$ for which Collatz is true? (I mean numbers such as other powers? or some other formula that is in essence not a manipulation of $2^n$. )

Thanks.

All numbers less than $20 × 2^{58}$, if that counts... –  Daniel Freedman Dec 29 '11 at 12:47
Trivially, $2^nk$ for any fixed $k$ known to satisfy the conjecture. –  Ilmari Karonen Dec 29 '11 at 12:53

By the work of Ştefan Andrei, Manfred Kudlek, Radu Ştefan Niculescu, there are some more infinite sets of numbers for which the conjecture holds. There was a related question on MO here.
