A decidable version of<?Pub Fmt italic>E<?Pub Fmt /italic>-unification called<?Pub Fmt italic>rigid E-unification<?Pub Fmt /italic> is introduced,and it is shown that the method of equational matings remains completewhen used in conjunction with rigid<?Pub Fmt italic>E<?Pub Fmt /italic>-unification. Checking that a familyof mated sets is an equational mating is equivalent to the followingrestricted kind of<?Pub Fmt italic>E<?Pub Fmt /italic>-unification.<?Pub Fmt italic>Problem<?Pub Fmt /italic> Given E&ar;=<fen lp="cub">Ei∣1≤i≤n<rp post="cub">
