(algebra) A structure-preserving map between two algebraic structures of the same type, such as groups, rings, or vector spaces. quotations examples

This motivates a generalization, and exponential homomorphisms are now defined, in an algebraic fashion, from certain free products to formal power series rings with non-commutative indeterminates.

A homomorphism of presheaves h : A → B {\displaystyle h:A\rightarrow B} is a collection of homomorphisms h U : A ( U ) → B ( U ) {\displaystyle h_{U}:A(U)\rightarrow B(U)} commuting with restrictions.

Definition 1.15. Let G {\displaystyle G} and H {\displaystyle H} be matrix Lie groups. A map Φ {\displaystyle \Phi } from G {\displaystyle G} to H {\displaystyle H} is called a Lie group homomorphism if (1) Φ {\displaystyle \Phi } is a group homomorphism and (2) Φ {\displaystyle \Phi } is continuous.
