wxyz-wing (aabc): (2=15) r47c1 - (15=4) r3c1 - (4=2) r1c3 => -2 r9c3; stte
or
m-wing (ABCD): -2 r7c1 = (2-4) r6c1 = r3c1 - (4=2) r1c3 => -2 r9c3; stte

Hmmm! I understand what Leren is doing, but I still have issues with Eureka notation for ALS structures. In this case, reading the chain from r-to-l seems awkward for the strong inference in r3c1. This is a case where I'd use a 3-cell ALS.

(2=4)r743c1 - (4=2)r1c3 => -2 r9c3; stte

On second thought, why can't it be a 4-cell LS that spans more than one house/unit?

(2=2)r743c1,r1c3 => -2 r9c3; stte

I think that I've just discovered a new way (for me) to write an XY-Chain.

I found it easier to follow, starting from a bivalue cell
(2=4)r1c3 - (4=15)r34r1 - (15=2)r7c1 => r9c3<>2
-or-
just pick one cell from column 1 to form a locked set {1,5} with r4c1.
digit 2 will be at (r1c3 or r7c1)
