For example, ISPs that dominate one geographical region can provide transit for this region and receive transit for other regions, thus forming partial transit relationships with other ISPs. Such geographical interdependencies clearly lead to relationship cycles: three ASs active primarily in the US, Europe, and Asia, but also present in the two other regions, may form a cycle by providing transit to each other for their primary renterestingly, this kind of information-losing abstractions of different-type objects or relationships as nodes or links of the same type explain cycles in other flow networks.
