Termination of R to be shown.

R
Dependency Pair Analysis

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

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

Furthermore, R contains one SCC.

Argument Filtering and Ordering

Dependency Pair:

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

Rule:

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

The following dependency pair can be strictly oriented:

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

The following rule can be oriented:

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

Used ordering: Lexicographic Path Order with Non-Strict Precedence with Quasi Precedence:
trivial

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

Dependency Graph

Dependency Pair:

Rule:

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

Using the Dependency Graph resulted in no new DP problems.
