    Abstract: The Andrews-Curtis conjecture states that every balanced
    presentation of the trivial group can be reduced to the standard
    one by a sequence of the elementary Nielsen transformations and
    conjugations. In this paper we describe all balanced presentations
    of the trivial group on two generators and with the total length
    of relators <= 12. We show that all these presentations satisfy
    the Andrews-Curtis conjecture.
