`     ↳Dependency Pair Analysis`

R contains the following Dependency Pairs:

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

Furthermore, R contains one SCC.

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

Dependency Pairs:

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

Rule:

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

The following dependency pairs can be strictly oriented:

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

Additionally, the following rule can be oriented:

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

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

resulting in one new DP problem.

The following remains to be proven:
Dependency Pairs:

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

Rule:

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