`     ↳Dependency Pair Analysis`

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

PURGE(.(x, y)) -> PURGE(remove(x, y))
PURGE(.(x, y)) -> REMOVE(x, y)
REMOVE(x, .(y, z)) -> REMOVE(x, z)

Furthermore, R contains two SCCs.

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

Dependency Pair:

REMOVE(x, .(y, z)) -> REMOVE(x, z)

Rules:

purge(nil) -> nil
purge(.(x, y)) -> .(x, purge(remove(x, y)))
remove(x, nil) -> nil
remove(x, .(y, z)) -> if(=(x, y), remove(x, z), .(y, remove(x, z)))

The following dependency pair can be strictly oriented:

REMOVE(x, .(y, z)) -> REMOVE(x, z)

There are no usable rules using the Ce-refinement that need to be oriented.
Used ordering: Homeomorphic Embedding Order with EMB
resulting in one new DP problem.
Used Argument Filtering System:
REMOVE(x1, x2) -> REMOVE(x1, x2)
.(x1, x2) -> .(x1, x2)

remove(x, nil) -> nil
remove(x, .(y, z)) -> if(=(x, y), remove(x, z), .(y, remove(x, z)))

Using the Dependency Graph resulted in no new DP problems.
