Abstract The (parameterized) FEEDBACK VERTEX SET problem on directed graphs (i.e., the DFVS problem) is defined as follows: given a directed graph $\textit{G}$ and a parameter $\textit{k},$ either construct a feedback vertex set of at most $\textit{k}$ vertices in $\textit{G}$ or report that no such a set exists. It has been a well-known open problem in parameterized computation and complexity whether the DFVS problem is fixed-parameter tractable, that is, whether the problem can be solved in time $f(k)n^{O(1)}$ for some function $\textit{f}.$ In this article, we develop new algorithmic techniques that result in an algorithm with running time $4^{k}$ $\textit{k}!$ $n^{O(1)}$ for the DFVS problem. Therefore, we resolve this open problem.
