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
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 Logic: Meta
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
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 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 industrial city
skyline, Chicago, IL, USA.
By the way, China has Intercity
Maglev Railways! America doesn't?
That will change shortly; see Edict #1.
