`Parent Node(s):`

A one-to-one mapping representing a pattern in the domain of the mapping by another pattern in its range without loss of information. The product of applying an isomorphism is called an isomorphic system that is a model of another by virtue of an isomorphism offers no simplifications. This may be useful, e.g., when one seeks an electronic substitute for a cognitive process such as the automatic pilot for an airplane. The more common simpler models, from a street map to a simulation of economic processes call for homomorphisms not isomorphisms. (Krippendorff)
