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). The word homomorphism comes from the Ancient Greek language: Template:Wikt-lang (Template:Transl) meaning "same" and Template:Wikt-lang (Template:Transl) meaning "form" or "shape". However, the word was apparently introduced to mathematics due to a (mis)translation of German Template:Wikt-lang meaning "similar" to Template:Lang meaning "same".
