: (sociology) the similarity in the structure or processes of different organizations
: 2. A one-to-one correspondence
: (group algebra) A bijection f'' such that both ''f'' and its inverse ''f −1 are homomorphisms, that is, structure-preserving mappings.
: (computer science) a one-to-one correspondence between all the elements of two sets, e.g. the instances of two classes, or the records in two datasets
: (category theory) A morphism which has an inverse; the composition of the morphism and its inverse yields either one of two identity morphisms (depending on the order of composition).
* (in category theory) iso
Anything that exhibits isomorphism
