`     ↳Dependency Pair Analysis`

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

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

Furthermore, R contains one SCC.

`     ↳DPs`
`       →DP Problem 1`
`         ↳Argument Filtering and Ordering`

Dependency Pairs:

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

Rule:

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

The following dependency pair can be strictly oriented:

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

The following rule can be oriented:

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

Used ordering: Lexicographic Path Order with Non-Strict Precedence with Quasi Precedence:
a > f

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

Rule:

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