I am a mathematician and computer programmer from
Chicago. I have a BA in Mathematics from
Northeastern Illinois University, and I'm also Sun
Certified. Since 2000, I've been working on the
Towers of Chicago puzzle; 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 (1300 x 1000).
of Chicago uses a dynamic
algorithm to compute the optimal partition numbers, and then
a recursive algorithm to
compute the moves. This program
is an example of Automated Reasoning,
especially since it has sequence variation.

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

Curiously enough, any statement
in mathematics can be reduced to a statement
of Boolean Logic. My treatment of Boolean Logic includes
truth constants, 6 operations, and perfect syntax
checking. Here is a list of logical
sentences that can be used to test Meta Theorem.
Meta Theorem was developed at Argonne National Laboratory
Automated Reasoning Project (Research Project #289). It
was used to

zero by Multipeg Towers of Chicago.
(The 3D volume of neutrinos has been observed
to be smaller than that of photons,
hence, neutrinos, having the same fractal
density as photons and photons, known by
relativity to possess zero mass, therefore
neutrinos possess zero mass.)

Since neutrinos are massless, therefore dark
matter cannot be composed of neutrinos.
Perhaps the inertial field of space has mass,
and thus holds the universe together.
North America has an inexhaustible power source that can
be used to run high speed
Here is a map of the proposed High Speed Rail System; this
system shall be powered by nuclear fusion.
These trains, TGV or Maglev,
will run at 150 mph or greater,
and will cover all regions of the continent. The flagship line will be the
Lakeshore Express from Chicago to New York!
In order to
build a national high speed rail system, we need the U.S.
withdraw from a variety of foreign lands and restore
development on American soil.
The Biden infrastructure package is insufficient in terms
of intercity high speed rail;
electrification needs to proceed westward of the northeast
corridor for us to
compete with China. At least $1 trillion needs to be
appropriated in order to fund
the entire High Speed Acela System.
Here is a list of high priority
railroads to be electrified:

(2) Hiawatha—Chicago―Milwaukee―Minneapolis (TGV)
(3) Lake ShoreExpress—Chicago―Cleveland―New
Orleans―Atlanta―Charlotte (TGV) (5)
