Context-sensitive dependency pairs (CS-DPs) are currently the most powerful method for automated termination analysis of context-sensitive rewriting. However, compared to DPs for ordinary rewriting, CS-DPs suffer from two main drawbacks: (a) CS-DPs can be collapsing. This complicates the handling of CS-DPs and makes them less powerful in practice. (b) There(More)
Context-sensitive rewriting (CSR) is a restriction of rewriting which forbids reductions on selected arguments of functions. Proving termination of CSR is an interesting problem with several applications in the fields of term rewriting and programming languages. Several methods have been developed for proving termination of CSR. The new version of MU-TERM(More)
The dependency pairs method is one of the most powerful technique for proving termination of rewriting and it is currently central in most automatic termination provers. Recently, it has been adapted to be used in proofs of termination of context-sensitive rewriting. The use of collapsing dependency pairs i.e., having a single variable in the right-hand(More)
mu-term is a tool which can be used to verify a number of termination properties of (variants of) Term Rewriting Systems (TRSs): termination of rewriting, termination of innermost rewriting, termination of order-sorted rewriting, termination of context-sensitive rewriting, termination of innermost context-sensitive rewriting and termination of rewriting(More)
Recently, the dependency pairs (DP) approach has been generalized to context-sensitive rewriting (CSR). Although the context-sensitive dependency pairs (CS-DP) approach provides a very good basis for proving termination of CSR, the current developments basically correspond to a ten-years-old DP approach. Thus, the task of adapting all recently introduced(More)
Termination of context-sensitive rewriting (CSR) is an interesting problem with several applications in the fields of term rewriting and in the analysis of programming languages like CafeOBJ, Maude, OBJ, etc. The dependency pair approach, one of the most powerful techniques for proving termination of rewriting, has been adapted to be used for proving(More)
In order to automatically infer the resource consumption of programs, analyzers track how data sizes change along a program's execution. Typically, analyzers measure the sizes of data by applying norms which are mappings from data to natural numbers that represent the sizes of the corresponding data. When norms are defined by taking type information into(More)
The morphology and size of spermatozoa hinder the study of the functional properties of the spermatozoa plasma membrane. However, some studies have revealed the presence of a number of ion channels in this cell. We set out to measure the endogenous currents and to study the effect of the venom of the Chilean black widow spider (Latrodectus mactans). By(More)
