Multipeg Towers of Hanoi
Robert J. Swartz
I am a mathematician and computer programmer from
Chicago. I have a BA in Mathematics from Northeastern
and I am also Sun Certified. Since 2000, I've been working
on the Towers of Hanoi; I programmed the multipeg version in
The multipeg version involves 4 or more pegs, as opposed to the
usual 3. These pegs are enumerated as follows: the
the final peg, and 2 or more auxiliary pegs. My algorithm
for solving this puzzle is recursive and dynamic. The puzzle
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).

projects I worked on: Programs
