<*mathematics*> 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.
