`     ↳Dependency Pair Analysis`

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

F(x, f(a, a)) -> F(f(f(f(a, a), a), a), x)
F(x, f(a, a)) -> F(f(f(a, a), a), a)
F(x, f(a, a)) -> F(f(a, a), a)

Furthermore, R contains one SCC.

`     ↳DPs`
`       →DP Problem 1`
`         ↳Usable Rules (Innermost)`

Dependency Pair:

F(x, f(a, a)) -> F(f(f(f(a, a), a), a), x)

Rule:

f(x, f(a, a)) -> f(f(f(f(a, a), a), a), x)

Strategy:

innermost

As we are in the innermost case, we can delete all 1 non-usable-rules.

`             ↳Instantiation Transformation`

Dependency Pair:

F(x, f(a, a)) -> F(f(f(f(a, a), a), a), x)

Rule:

none

Strategy:

innermost

On this DP problem, an Instantiation SCC transformation can be performed.
As a result of transforming the rule

F(x, f(a, a)) -> F(f(f(f(a, a), a), a), x)
one new Dependency Pair is created:

F(f(f(f(a, a), a), a), f(a, a)) -> F(f(f(f(a, a), a), a), f(f(f(a, a), a), a))

The transformation is resulting in no new DP problems.
