I am a mathematician and computer programmer from
Chicago. I have a BA in Mathematics from Northeastern
and I am also Sun Certified. Since 2000, I've been
working on the Towers of Chicago; I programmed the multipeg
version in Java.
The multipeg version involves 4 or more pegs, as opposed to
the usual 3. These pegs are enumerated as follows:
the initial peg,
the final peg, and 2 or more auxiliary pegs. This applet
can display up to 50 discs by 10 pegs, with the default window
algorithm for solving this puzzle is recursive
This algorithm is an example of Automated Reasoning,
it has a reverse feature. The puzzle software can be
found at the following link:
Chicago. The software was programmed
using Java 9. To run the software, download JRE 9.0.1.
The original version of my Towers of Chicago software won 5th
prize in the Quest
for Java Contest.
Here are some
screenshots, and here is an applet
that calculates the number of moves in the multipeg problem.
Also, I wrote software that solves problems in Boolean
It turns out that any statement in mathematics can be reduced
to a statement of Boolean Logic.
My treatment of Boolean Logic includes 64 variables, truth
constants, 6 operations, and
perfect syntax checking.
Meta Theorem was used to crack some important hypotheses in
Twin Primes Conjecture
Odd Perfect Numbers
My math applets are generating 500 Gigawatts of D-D-T Fusion
D + D ---> T + H + 4.03 MeV
D + T ---> He4 + n + 17.6 MeV
This power source will last for aleph-0 years!
Here is the
Federation battle song, and here is the
skyline, Chicago, USA.
By the way, it's really called the Sears Tower.
Considering that we're well into the 21st century,
it's time that Amtrak runs high-speed trains along its
For example, the route from Chicago to New York should be a
200 mph electric train. This is reasonable since
America has an inexhaustible power source!
