AbstractIn previous works of the author, the concept of a binary reflexive adjacency relations was introduced on the set of all binary relations of the set , and an algebraic system consisting of all binary relations of the set and of all unordered pairs of adjacent binary relations was defined. If is a finite set, then this algebraic system is a graph (graph of binary relations ). The current paper introduces the notion of a support set for acyclic and transitive digraphs. This is the collections and consisting of the vertices of the digraph that have zero indegree and zero outdegree, respectively. It is proved that if is a connected component of the graph containing the acyclic or transitive digraph , then . A formula for the number of acyclic and transitive digraphs having a fixed support set is obtained.
