Abstract

This note presents purely mechanical proofs of the Levi commutator problem in group theory. The problem was solved first by using the theorem prover EQP, developed by William McCune at the Argonne National Laboratory. The fastest proof was found by using Peers-mcd, the Clause-Diffusion parallelization of EQP, developed by the author at the University of Iowa.
