Dependency Pair Analysis

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

MINUS(s(x), s(y)) -> MINUS(x, y)
QUOT(s(x), s(y)) -> QUOT(minus(x, y), s(y))
QUOT(s(x), s(y)) -> MINUS(x, y)
LE(s(x), s(y)) -> LE(x, y)
APP(add(n, x), y) -> APP(x, y)
LOW(n, add(m, x)) -> LE(m, n)
IFLOW(true, n, add(m, x)) -> LOW(n, x)
IFLOW(false, n, add(m, x)) -> LOW(n, x)
HIGH(n, add(m, x)) -> LE(m, n)
IFHIGH(true, n, add(m, x)) -> HIGH(n, x)
IFHIGH(false, n, add(m, x)) -> HIGH(n, x)

Furthermore, R contains seven SCCs.
