Towards a Unified Ordering for Superposition-Based Automated Reasoning

We propose an extension of the automated theorem prover E by the weighted path ordering. Weighted path ordering is theoretically stronger than all the orderings used in E-prover, however its parametrization is more involved than those normally used in automated reasoning. In particular, it depends on a term algebra. We discuss how the parameters for the ordering can be proposed automatically for particular theorem proving problem strategies. We integrate the ordering in E-prover and perform an evaluation on the standard theorem proving benchmarks. The ordering is complementary to the ones used in E prover so far.
