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
My algorithm for solving this puzzle is recursive
dynamic. This algorithm is an
example of Automated Reasoning, especially since
it has a reverse feature. The puzzle software can be
found at the following link: Towers of
Chicago. The software was programmed
using Java 10. To run the software, download
Here are some
screenshots, and here is an applet
that calculates the number of moves in the multipeg problem.
Here is another applet
that calculates the number of top-level partition numbers 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
Considering that the United States has an inexhaustible power
source, and that
we're well into the 21st century, Amtrak should be
trains at 200 mph.
Here is a map of the proposed
As Emperor of North America,
I order the United States and Canada to start
building this network as of 2018. Note that since the
imperial city, Chicago,
has 4 supertowers, the rail network won't have to be subdivided
