Towers of Chicago

I am a mathematician and computer programmer from Chicago.  I have a BA in Mathematics from Northeastern Illinois University,
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 size. 
My algorithm for solving this puzzle is recursive and 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 8. 

The original version of my Towers of Chicago software won fifth 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
LogicMeta Theorem
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 mathematics:
Twin Primes Conjecture
Continuum Hypothesis
Odd Perfect Numbers



My math applets are generating 500 Gigawatts of DDT Fusion Power:
D + D ==> T + H + 4.0 MeV
D + T ==> He + n + 17.6 MeV
This power source will last for 10 million years!

Here is the Federation battle song, and here is the imperial city skyline, Chicago, USA.



For my girlfriend Diana Lanza.  We're Emperor and Empress.

By the way, China has Intercity Maglev Railways!  America doesn't?
That will change shortly; see Edict #1.
