Let X be a non empty set and f a map from X to X. Considering f as a 1-ary operation on X we study the algebraic structure (X,f), which is called monounary algebra. These algebras can be introduced as particular oriented graphs too, emphasizing their topological or combinatorial properties. In the finite case, we obtain methods of algebraic representation through adjacency matrices or polynomials.
