Abstract : Section 2 generalizes some concepts in directed graphs to configurations, called bigraph, which have directed as well as undirected lines. Several relations are defined in terms of a bigraph. Conditions are found under which it is possible to find weak, partial, and simple orders as well as preference relations. An application of this theory is found in following sections 3 and 4. These sections deal with the estimation of an order relation from paired comparisons in which ties may occur. (Author)
