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. 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 (see index).

Also, one can find links to other software projects I worked on: Programs
