Abstract: In this paper we find a one-to-one correspondence between transitive relations and partial orders. On the basis of this correspondence we deduce the recurrence formula for enumeration of their numbers. We also determine the number of all transitive relations on an arbitrary $n$-element set up to $n=14$.
Keywords: enumeration, transitivity, partial order
