On Quasi Ordinal Diagram Systems

Mitsuhiro Okada, Yuta Takahashi

The purposes of this note are the following two; we first generalize Okada-Takeuti's well quasi ordinal diagram theory, utilizing the recent result of Dershowitz-Tzameret's version of tree embedding theorem with gap conditions. Second, we discuss possible use of such strong ordinal notation systems for the purpose of a typical traditional termination proof method for term rewriting systems, especially for second-order (pattern-matching-based) rewriting systems including a rewrite-theoretic version of Buchholz's hydra game.
