A child prodigy, Hamilton was born the son of Archibald Hamilton, a solicitor, in Dublin at 36 Dominick Street.
Hamilton's mathematical studies seem to have been undertaken and carried to their full development without any assistance whatever, and the result is that his writings belong to no particular "school," unless indeed we consider them to form, as they are well entitled to do, a school by themselves.
Hamilton was not specially fitted for the post, for although he had a profound acquaintance with theoretical astronomy, he had paid but little attention to the regular work of the practical astronomer.

 Counting Hamilton cycles in product graphs
I also learned that each snake that would visit all the points of the graph is called a Hamilton path, named after Hamilton, who first described them.
It was also at that time, that I tried to determine the total numbers of Hamilton paths.
I came across the problem related to the number of paths a rook could walk on a chess-board from one corner to the other without visiting a field more than once.
