We present a general methodology of proving decidability of equational theory of programming language concepts in the framework of second-order algebraic theories of Fiore, Hur and Mahmoud. We propose a Haskell-based analysis tool \SOL, Second-Order Laboratory, which assists the proofs of confluence and strong normalisation of computation rules derived from second-order algebraic theories.

To cover various examples in programming language theory, we combine and extend both syntactical and semantical results of second-order computation in non-trivial manner. In particular, our choice of Yokoyama's deterministic second-order patters as a syntactic construct of rules is important to cover a wide range of examples, such as
Hasegawa's linear \lmd-calculus. We demonstrate how to prove decidability of various algebraic theories in the literature. It includes the equational theories of monad and computational \lmd-calculi, Staton's theory of reading and writing bits, Plotkin and Power's theory of states, and Stark's theory of \pi-calculus.
