The size-change principle and dependency pairs for termination of term rewriting

René Thiemann, Jürgen Giesl
2005 Applicable Algebra in Engineering, Communication and Computing  
We extend this principle in order to prove termination and innermost termination of arbitrary term rewrite systems (TRSs).  ...  To benefit from their respective advantages, we show how to combine the size-change principle with classical orders and with dependency pairs.  ...  We are grateful to the referees for many helpful suggestions and remarks.  ...

Size-Change Termination for Term Rewriting [chapter]

René Thiemann, Jürgen Giesl

The Size-Change Principle We assume familiarity with the basics of term rewriting (see e.g., [3] ).  ...  We extend this principle in order to prove termination and innermost termination of arbitrary term rewrite systems (TRSs).  ...  However, up to now the connection between this principle and existing approaches for termination proofs of term rewriting was unclear.  ...

Termination of λΠ modulo rewriting using the size-change principle (work in progress) [article]

Frédéric Blanqui, Guillaume Genestier (DEDUCTEAM, LSV, CRI, ENS Paris Saclay)
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The Size-Change Termination principle was first introduced to study the termination of first-order functional programs.  ...  In this work, we show that it can also be used to study the termination of higher-order rewriting in a system of dependent types extending LF.  ...  The authors thank Olivier Hermant for his comments, as well as the anonymous referees.  ...

Automated termination proofs for haskell by term rewriting

Jürgen Giesl, Matthias Raffelsieper, Peter Schneider-Kamp, Stephan Swiderski, René Thiemann
2011 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems  
In particular, we show how termination techniques for ordinary rewriting can be used to handle those features of Haskell which are missing in term rewriting (e.g., lazy evaluation, polymorphic types, and  ...  There are many powerful techniques for automated termination analysis of term rewriting. However, up to now they have hardly been used for real programming languages.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank the reviewers for many helpful suggestions and remarks.  ...

A fine-grained parallel completion procedure

Reinhard Bündgen, Manfred Göbel, Wolfgang Küchlin
1994 Proceedings of the international symposium on Symbolic and algebraic computation - ISSAC '94  
The selection of the best new rule in the outer loop, and hence the completion strategy, is exactly the same as for the sequential algorithm.  ...  We present a parallel Knuth-Bendiz completion algorithm where the inner loop, deriving the consequences of adding a new rule to the system, is multi-threaded.  ...  We also thank Michael Sperber for his implementation of the ALDES-to-C Compiler and Nick Nevin and Jeff Ward for their contributions to the S-threads system.  ...

The Certification Problem Format

Christian Sternagel, René Thiemann
2014 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
Whereas CPF was originally invented to combine three different formats for termination proofs into a single one, in the meanwhile proofs for several other properties of term rewrite systems are also expressible  ...  Its acceptance is also demonstrated in international competitions: the certified tracks of both the termination and the confluence competition utilized CPF as exchange format between automated tools and  ...  There are certificates for termination and nontermination of (relative) TRSs and dependency pair problems.  ...
