Geodesic Rewriting Systems and Pregroups [chapter]

Volker Diekert, Andrew J. Duncan, Alexei G. Myasnikov
2010 Combinatorial and Geometric Group Theory  
We describe a Knuth-Bendix completion process to construct such systems, show how they may be found with the help of Stallings' pregroups and conversely may be used to construct such pregroups.  ...  We show that these are well-behaved and convenient to use, and give several examples of classes of groups for which they can be constructed from natural presentations.  ...  The Knuth-Bendix procedure really depends on the chosen ordering .  ...

Pictures of Processes: Automated Graph Rewriting for Monoidal Categories and Applications to Quantum Computing [article]

Aleks Kissinger
2012 arXiv   pre-print
If we allow plugging input and output wires together, we can intuitively represent complex compositions of processes, formalised as morphisms in a monoidal category. [...]  ...  Expanding · and · using the dualiser, we obtain the following expression for the Frobenius algebra Knuth-Bendix completion for string graphs Knuth-Bendix completion is a procedure for turning terminating  ...  Knuth-Bendix completion takes a rewrite system R and a strict, total reduction ordering ω on terms, and operates as follows: 1. Compute all of the critical pairs for R. 2.  ...

Polynomial Path Orders

Martin Avanzini, Georg Moser, Franz Baader
2013 Logical Methods in Computer Science  
On the other hand POP* provides an order-theoretic characterisation of the polytime computable functions: the polytime computable functions are exactly the functions computable by an orthogonal constructor  ...  We introduce a path order with multiset status, the polynomial path order POP*, that is applicable in two related, but distinct contexts.  ...  For instance, the Knuth-Bendix order [14] can be miniaturised to characterise linear space [20] .  ...

Automated Verification of Relational While-Programs [chapter]

Rudolf Berghammer, Peter Höfner, Insa Stucke
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Prover9 implements a first-order resolution and paramodulation calculus. Equalities are handled via rewriting rules and Knuth-Bendix completion.  ...  For example, the latter three characterise S as transitive, antisymmetric, and total (sometimes also called complete); hence as a linear order.  ...

Computing group resolutions

Graham Ellis
2004 Journal of symbolic computation  
We describe an algorithm for constructing a reasonably small CW-structure on the classifying space of a finite or automatic group G.  ...  General methods for calculating cohomology of finitely generated infinite groups tend to involve Gröbner bases or Knuth-Bendix type rewrite methods.  ...  The procedure of Brown and Razak Salleh has been implemented by Heyworth and Wensley (2003) using a logged Knuth-Bendix algorithm and Gröbner basis techniques.  ...

It also provides techniques such as Knuth-Bendix completion [KB70] that turn ill-behaved rewriting systems into well-behaved ones.  ...  As shown in the sequel to this paper (after [BGK + 17, BGK + 21]), DPOI enjoys the Knuth-Bendix property: joinability of critical pairs is the same as local confluence.  ...

Polynomial Path Orders: A Maximal Model [article]

Martin Avanzini, Georg Moser
2012 arXiv   pre-print
As an application in the context of ICC we provide an order-theoretic characterisation of the polytime computable functions.  ...  We introduce a novel path order with multiset status, the polynomial path order POP*.  ...  Similar, multiset path orders (MPO for short) induce primitive recursive complexity [24] , the induced bound for the Knuth-Bendix order is two-recursive [31] and for lexicographic path orders it is  ...
