Triangulation in Rewriting

19.pdf (0.5 MB)


We introduce a process, dubbed triangulation, turning any rewrite relation into a confluent one. It is more direct than usual completion, in the sense that objects connected by a peak are directly related rather than their normal forms. We investigate conditions under which this process preserves desirable properties such as termination.
