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, and here is an applet that calculates the number of moves in the multipeg problem.

Also, I wrote software that solves problems in zeroth-order logic: Meta Theorem

It turns out that any statement in mathematics can be reduced to a statement of zeroth-order logic.

My treatment of zeroth-order logic includes 64 variables, truth constants, 6 operations, and

perfect syntax checking.

Meta Theorem was used to crack P vs NP, one of the ClayMath Problems.

My math applets are generating 500 Gigawatts of Tritium Fusion Power:

T + T ==> He + 2n + energy. This power source will last for billions of years, because the tritium comes from the deuterium

feed stock: D + D ==> T + H.

Here is the Federation battle song, and here is the imperial city skyline, Chicago, USA.

For my girlfriend Diana Lanza. We're Emperor and Emperess!

By the way, China has Intercity Maglev Railways! America doesn't?

That will change shortly; see Edict #1.
