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
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 DDT Fusion
D + D ---> T + H + 4.0 MeV
D + T ---> He + n + 17.6 MeV
This power source will last for aleph-0 years!

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