`     ↳Dependency Pair Analysis`

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

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

Furthermore, R contains one SCC.

`     ↳DPs`
`       →DP Problem 1`
`         ↳Polynomial Ordering`

Dependency Pairs:

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

Rule:

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

The following dependency pair can be strictly oriented:

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

Additionally, the following rule can be oriented:

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

Used ordering: Polynomial ordering with Polynomial interpretation:
 POL(a) =  1 POL(f(x1, x2)) =  0 POL(F(x1, x2)) =  x2

resulting in one new DP problem.

The following remains to be proven:
Dependency Pairs:

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

Rule:

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