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.
