File Name: homomorphism and isomorphism in group theory .zip
In algebra , a homomorphism is a structure-preserving map between two algebraic structures of the same type such as two groups , two rings , or two vector spaces. Homomorphisms of vector spaces are also called linear maps , and their study is the object of linear algebra. The concept of homomorphism has been generalized, under the name of morphism , to many other structures that either do not have an underlying set, or are not algebraic.
This generalization is the starting point of category theory. A homomorphism may also be an isomorphism , an endomorphism , an automorphism , etc. Each of those can be defined in a way that may be generalized to any class of morphisms.
A homomorphism is a map between two algebraic structures of the same type that is of the same name , that preserves the operations of the structures. The operations that must be preserved by a homomorphism include 0-ary operations , that is the constants. In particular, when an identity element is required by the type of structure, the identity element of the first structure must be mapped to the corresponding identity element of the second structure.
An algebraic structure may have more than one operation, and a homomorphism is required to preserve each operation. Thus a map that preserves only some of the operations is not a homomorphism of the structure, but only a homomorphism of the substructure obtained by considering only the preserved operations. For example, a map between monoids that preserves the monoid operation and not the identity element, is not a monoid homomorphism, but only a semigroup homomorphism.
The notation for the operations does not need to be the same in the source and the target of a homomorphism. For example, the real numbers form a group for addition, and the positive real numbers form a group for multiplication. The exponential function. It is even an isomorphism see below , as its inverse function , the natural logarithm , satisfies. The real numbers are a ring , having both addition and multiplication. If we define a function between these rings as follows:. For another example, the nonzero complex numbers form a group under the operation of multiplication, as do the nonzero real numbers.
Zero must be excluded from both groups since it does not have a multiplicative inverse , which is required for elements of a group. Note that f cannot be extended to a homomorphism of rings from the complex numbers to the real numbers , since it does not preserve addition:.
Several kinds of homomorphisms have a specific name, which is also defined for general morphisms. An isomorphism between algebraic structures of the same type is commonly defined as a bijective homomorphism. In the more general context of category theory , an isomorphism is defined as a morphism that has an inverse that is also a morphism. In the specific case of algebraic structures, the two definitions are equivalent, although they may differ for non-algebraic structures, which have an underlying set.
This proof does not work for non-algebraic structures. For examples, for topological spaces , a morphism is a continuous map , and the inverse of a bijective continuous map is not necessarily continuous. An isomorphism of topological spaces, called homeomorphism or bicontinuous map , is thus a bijective continuous map, whose inverse is also continuous. An endomorphism is a homomorphism whose domain equals the codomain , or, more generally, a morphism whose source is equal to the target.
The endomorphisms of an algebraic structure, or of an object of a category form a monoid under composition. The endomorphisms of a vector space or of a module form a ring. In the case of a vector space or a free module of finite dimension , the choice of a basis induces a ring isomorphism between the ring of endomorphisms and the ring of square matrices of the same dimension.
An automorphism is an endomorphism that is also an isomorphism. The automorphisms of an algebraic structure or of an object of a category form a group under composition, which is called the automorphism group of the structure.
Many groups that have received a name are automorphism groups of some algebraic structure. For algebraic structures, monomorphisms are commonly defined as injective homomorphisms. In the more general context of category theory , a monomorphism is defined as a morphism that is left cancelable.
These two definitions of monomorphism are equivalent for all common algebraic structures. More precisely, they are equivalent for fields , for which every homomorphism is a monomorphism, and for varieties of universal algebra , that is algebraic structures for which operations and axioms identities are defined without any restriction fields are not a variety, as the multiplicative inverse is defined either as a unary operation or as a property of the multiplication, which are, in both cases, defined only for nonzero elements.
In particular, the two definitions of a monomorphism are equivalent for sets , magmas , semigroups , monoids , groups , rings , fields , vector spaces and modules.
A split monomorphism is a homomorphism that has a left inverse and thus it is itself a right inverse of that other homomorphism. For sets and vector spaces, every monomorphism is a split homomorphism, but this property does not hold for most common algebraic structures. This proof works not only for algebraic structures, but also for any category whose objects are sets and arrows are maps between these sets.
For example, an injective continuous map is a monomorphism in the category of topological spaces. Two such formulas are said equivalent if one may pass from one to the other by applying the axioms identities of the structure. This defines an equivalence relation , if the identities are not subject to conditions, that is if one works with a variety. In algebra , epimorphisms are often defined as surjective homomorphisms. A surjective homomorphism is always right cancelable, but the converse is not always true for algebraic structures.
However, the two definitions of epimorphism are equivalent for sets , vector spaces , abelian groups , modules see below for a proof , and groups. Algebraic structures for which there exist non-surjective epimorphisms include semigroups and rings. The most basic example is the inclusion of integers into rational numbers , which is an homomorphism of rings and of multiplicative semigroups.
For both structures it is a monomorphism and a non-surjective epimorphism, but not an isomorphism. A wide generalization of this example is the localization of a ring by a multiplicative set. Every localization is a ring epimorphism, which is not, in general, surjective. As localizations are fundamental in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry , this may explain why in these areas, the definition of epimorphisms as right cancelable homomorphisms is generally preferred.
A split epimorphism is a homomorphism that has a right inverse and thus it is itself a left inverse of that other homomorphism. For sets and vector spaces, every epimorphism is a split epimorphism, but this property does not hold for most common algebraic structures. We want to prove that if it is not surjective, it is not right cancelable. The kernels of homomorphisms of a given type of algebraic structure are naturally equipped with some structure.
This structure type of the kernels is the same as the considered structure, in the case of abelian groups , vector spaces and modules , but is different and has received a specific name in other cases, such as normal subgroup for kernels of group homomorphisms and ideals for kernels of ring homomorphisms in the case of non-commutative rings, the kernels are the two-sided ideals. In model theory , the notion of an algebraic structure is generalized to structures involving both operations and relations.
Let L be a signature consisting of function and relation symbols, and A , B be two L -structures. Then a homomorphism from A to B is a mapping h from the domain of A to the domain of B such that. In the special case with just one binary relation, we obtain the notion of a graph homomorphism.
For a detailed discussion of relational homomorphisms and isomorphisms see. Homomorphisms are also used in the study of formal languages  and are often briefly referred to as morphisms. Here the monoid operation is concatenation and the identity element is the empty word.
From this perspective, a language homormorphism is precisely a monoid homomorphism. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Structure-preserving map between two algebraic structures of the same type. Not to be confused with holomorphism or homeomorphism. Proof of the equivalence of the two definitions of monomorphisms.
Equivalence of the two definitions of epimorphism. Main article: Kernel algebra. Juxtaposition of terms denotes concatenation. For example, h u h v denotes the concatenation of h u with h v. Mathematische Annalen in German. From footnote on p. Klein, instead of the cumbersome and not always satisfactory designations "holohedric, or hemihedric, etc. From p. Klein during his more recent lectures, I write in place of the earlier designation "merohedral isomorphism" the more logical "homomorphism".

Isomorphism , in modern algebra , a one-to-one correspondence mapping between two sets that preserves binary relationships between elements of the sets. For example, the set of natural numbers can be mapped onto the set of even natural numbers by multiplying each natural number by 2. The binary operation of adding two numbers is preserved—that is, adding two natural numbers and then multiplying the sum by 2 gives the same result as multiplying each natural number by 2 and then adding the products together—so the sets are isomorphic for addition. In symbols, let A and B be sets with elements a n and b m , respectively. If the sets A and B are the same, f is called an automorphism. Isomorphisms are one of the subjects studied in group theory.

From this property, one can deduce that h maps the identity element e G of G to the identity element e H of H ,. Older notations for the homomorphism h x may be x h or x h , [ citation needed ] though this may be confused as an index or a general subscript. In automata theory , sometimes homomorphisms are written to the right of their arguments without parentheses, so that h x becomes simply x h.

We've looked at groups defined by generators and relations. We've also developed an intuitive notion of what it means for two groups to be the same. This sections will make this concept more precise, placing it in the more general setting of maps between groups. A homomorphism is a map between two groups which respects the group structure. The last part of the above activity hints at a key fact: a homomorphism is determined by what elements it sends the generators to.
A group homomorphism is a map between two groups such that the group operation is preserved: for all , where the product on the left-hand side is in and on the right-hand side in. As a result, a group homomorphism maps the identity element in to the identity element in :. Note that a homomorphism must preserve the inverse map because , so.
