A term rewriting system R is orthogonal if for each rule l [right arrow] r [element of] R the left-hand side l is linear (left-linearity) and for each nonvariable subterm l[|.
In orthogonal term rewriting systems, every term not in normal form has a redex that must be reduced to compute the term's normal form.
Consequently, the defined functions of an inductively sequential term rewriting system are completely defined over their application domains [Guttag and Horning 1978; Thiel 1984] (i.
Consider the following term rewriting system for subtraction:
This term rewriting system is inductively sequential and a definitional tree, T, of the operation "-" has an exempt node for the pattern 0 - s(X), i.
Let R be a term rewriting system without rules for [approximately equals] and [conjunction].
Since weakly orthogonal term rewriting systems lack a notion of needed redex, the strong optimality results of needed narrowing cannot be preserved by weakly needed narrowing.
