`     ↳Dependency Pair Analysis`

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

F(a, x) -> F(b, f(c, x))
F(a, x) -> F(c, x)
F(a, f(b, x)) -> F(b, f(a, x))
F(a, f(b, x)) -> F(a, x)
F(d, f(c, x)) -> F(d, f(a, x))
F(d, f(c, x)) -> F(a, x)
F(a, f(c, x)) -> F(c, f(a, x))
F(a, f(c, x)) -> F(a, x)

Furthermore, R contains two SCCs.

`       →DP Problem 1`
`         ↳Argument Filtering and Ordering`
`       →DP Problem 2`
`         ↳Remaining`

Dependency Pairs:

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

Rules:

f(a, x) -> f(b, f(c, x))
f(a, f(b, x)) -> f(b, f(a, x))
f(d, f(c, x)) -> f(d, f(a, x))
f(a, f(c, x)) -> f(c, f(a, x))

Strategy:

innermost

The following dependency pairs can be strictly oriented:

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

There are no usable rules for innermost that need to be oriented.
Used ordering: Lexicographic Path Order with Non-Strict Precedence with Quasi Precedence:
trivial

resulting in one new DP problem.
Used Argument Filtering System:
F(x1, x2) -> F(x1, x2)
f(x1, x2) -> f(x1, x2)

Dependency Pair:

Rules:

f(a, x) -> f(b, f(c, x))
f(a, f(b, x)) -> f(b, f(a, x))
f(d, f(c, x)) -> f(d, f(a, x))
f(a, f(c, x)) -> f(c, f(a, x))

Strategy:

innermost

Using the Dependency Graph resulted in no new DP problems.
