Given a sequence $S := (a_1, b_1), \ldots, (a_n, b_n)$ with $a_i, b_i \in \mathbb{Z}_0^+$, does there exist a directed acyclic graph (DAG) (no parallel arcs allowed) with labeled vertex set $V := \{v_1, \ldots , v_n\}$ such that for all $v_i \in V$ indegree and outdegree of $v_i$ match exactly the given numbers $a_i$ and $b_i$, respectively?
