`     ↳Dependency Pair Analysis`

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

F(x, a(b(y))) -> F(a(a(b(x))), y)
F(a(x), y) -> F(x, a(y))
F(b(x), y) -> F(x, b(y))

Furthermore, R contains one SCC.

`         ↳Instantiation Transformation`

Dependency Pairs:

F(b(x), y) -> F(x, b(y))
F(a(x), y) -> F(x, a(y))

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

Strategy:

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

F(a(x), y) -> F(x, a(y))
three new Dependency Pairs are created:

F(a(x''), a(y'')) -> F(x'', a(a(y'')))
F(a(a(b(x''))), y'') -> F(a(b(x'')), a(y''))
F(a(x''), b(y'')) -> F(x'', a(b(y'')))

The transformation is resulting in one new DP problem:
