`     ↳Dependency Pair Analysis`

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

QSORT(.(x, y)) -> QSORT(lowers(x, y))
QSORT(.(x, y)) -> LOWERS(x, y)
QSORT(.(x, y)) -> QSORT(greaters(x, y))
QSORT(.(x, y)) -> GREATERS(x, y)
LOWERS(x, .(y, z)) -> LOWERS(x, z)
GREATERS(x, .(y, z)) -> GREATERS(x, z)

Furthermore, R contains three SCCs.

`       →DP Problem 2`
`         ↳AFS`
`       →DP Problem 3`
`         ↳AFS`

Dependency Pair:

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

Rules:

qsort(nil) -> nil
qsort(.(x, y)) -> ++(qsort(lowers(x, y)), .(x, qsort(greaters(x, y))))
lowers(x, nil) -> nil
lowers(x, .(y, z)) -> if(<=(y, x), .(y, lowers(x, z)), lowers(x, z))
greaters(x, nil) -> nil
greaters(x, .(y, z)) -> if(<=(y, x), greaters(x, z), .(y, greaters(x, z)))

The following dependency pair can be strictly oriented:

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

There are no usable rules using the Ce-refinement 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:
LOWERS(x1, x2) -> LOWERS(x1, x2)
.(x1, x2) -> .(x1, x2)

Dependency Pair:

Rules:

lowers(x, nil) -> nil
lowers(x, .(y, z)) -> if(<=(y, x), .(y, lowers(x, z)), lowers(x, z))
greaters(x, nil) -> nil
greaters(x, .(y, z)) -> if(<=(y, x), greaters(x, z), .(y, greaters(x, z)))

Using the Dependency Graph resulted in no new DP problems.
