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 Hanoi; 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. The puzzle software

can be found at the following link: Multipeg Towers of Hanoi. The software was programmed using Java 6.0.

The original version of my Towers of Hanoi
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
