Equational unification is the problem of solving an equation modulo equational axioms. In this paper, we provide a relationship between equational unification and homological algebra for equational theories. We will construct a functor from the category of sets of equational axioms to the category of abelian groups. Then, our main theorem gives a necessary condition of equational unifiability that is described in terms of abelian groups associated with equational axioms and homomorphisms between them. To construct our functor, we use a ringoid (a category enriched over the category of abelian groups) obtained from the equational axioms and a free resolution of a "good" module over the ringoid, which was developed by Malbos and Mimram.

It is well-known that some equational theories such as groups or boolean algebras can be defined by fewer equational axioms than the original axioms. However, it is not easy to determine if a given set of axioms is the smallest or not. Malbos and Mimram investigated a general method to find a lower bound of the cardinality of the set of equational axioms (or rewrite rules) that is equivalent to a given equational theory (or term rewriting systems), using homological algebra. Their method is an analog of Squier’s homology theory on string rewriting systems. In this paper, we develop the homology theory for term rewriting systems more and provide a better lower bound under a stronger notion of equivalence than their equivalence. The author also implemented a program to compute the lower bounds.

B-terms are built from the B combinator alone defined by B == lambda f.lambda g.lambda x. f~(g~x), which is well-known as a function composition operator. This paper investigates an interesting property of B-terms, that is, whether repetitive right applications of a B-term cycles or not. We discuss conditions for B-terms to have and not to have the property through a sound and complete equational axiomatization. Specifically, we give examples of B-terms which have the property and show that there are infinitely many B-terms which do not have the property. Also, we introduce a canonical representation of B-terms that is useful to detect cycles, or equivalently, to prove the property, with an efficient algorithm.
