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).
