Isomorphism

I`so`mor´phism
n.1.(Crystallog.) A similarity of crystalline form between substances of similar composition, as between the sulphates of barium (BaSO4) and strontium (SrSO4). It is sometimes extended to include similarity of form between substances of unlike composition, which is more properly called homœomorphism.
2.(Math.) A one-to-one mapping of one set onto another set which preserves the relations between the elements of the domains of the sets.
Noun1.isomorphism - (biology) similarity or identity of form or shape or structure
Synonyms: isomorphy
(mathematics)isomorphism - A bijective map between two objects which preserves, in both directions, any structure under consideration. Thus a `group isomorphism' preserves group structure; an order isomorphism (between posets) preserves the order relation, and so on. Usually it is clear from context what sort of isomorphism is intended.
