\begin{abstract}
Is there a one-rule string rewriting system that is non-terminating
but also non-looping?
\end{abstract}
Is there a one-rule string rewriting system that is non-terminating
but also non-looping, that is not allowing a rewrite sequence
$ x \rightarrow^* uxv$ ?
Motivation and examples of two rule string rewriting
systems and a one rule term rewriting system that is non-terminating
and non-looping, can be found in \cite{ZG96}.
This problem is related to \rtaref{one} and \rtaref{string-rewriting}. More
about the history of this problem in the context of the question of one-rule
termination can be found in \cite{Dershowitz05OpenClosed}.
