  • "The term isomorphism applies when two complex structures can be mapped onto each other, in such a way that to each part of one structure there is a corresponding part in the other structure, where “corresponding” means that the two parts play similar roles in their respective structures."
    Douglas R. Hofstadter, Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

    Starting from this commonly applied definition, this poster series seeks to illuminate the term isomorphism in a variety of contexts.
