The Tower of Hanoi: A Bibliography. The is a substantially
enlarged editon of the Tower of Hanoi bibliography first posted here in 1997.
In this edition, an attempt has been made to include every relevant document
published during the first 100 years of the tower's history, from 1883
through 1983. Coverage is more selective in recent years. In particular, recent articles
in psychological journals that discuss uses of the puzzle in testing of subjects, and
articles in artificial intelligence that serve similar purposes, are generally not
included, nor are textbooks in discrete mathematics or computer science that
provide routine presentations of standard basic information. 38 pages.
