Runtime Complexity TRS:
The TRS R consists of the following rules:

active(f(f(a))) → mark(c(f(g(f(a)))))
active(f(X)) → f(active(X))
active(g(X)) → g(active(X))
f(mark(X)) → mark(f(X))
g(mark(X)) → mark(g(X))
proper(f(X)) → f(proper(X))
proper(a) → ok(a)
proper(c(X)) → c(proper(X))
proper(g(X)) → g(proper(X))
f(ok(X)) → ok(f(X))
c(ok(X)) → ok(c(X))
g(ok(X)) → ok(g(X))
top(mark(X)) → top(proper(X))
top(ok(X)) → top(active(X))

### (1) CpxTrsMatchBoundsProof (EQUIVALENT transformation)

A linear upper bound on the runtime complexity of the TRS R could be shown with a Match Bound [MATCHBOUNDS1,MATCHBOUNDS2] of 2.
