Hanoi twin towers

We present results related to a certain self-similar group of rooted tree automoprhisms modeling the classical Hanoi Towers Problem. Some of the results concern the structure of the group (e.g., being a branch group without the FA property), while some represent applications of our understanding of this structure (e.g., we solve the Hanoi Twin Towers Problem).
