A function is an "isomorphism" from one algebraic structure, X, to another, Y, if and only if 1) It is "one-to-one" and "onto". "one to one": if f(x)= f(y) then x= y. "onto": for any y in Y, there exist x in X such that f(x)= y. For any y in R, take x= y. 2) f(x+ y)= f(x)+ f(y). 3) f(x•y)= f(x)•f(y) Since f, here, is the identity function all of those are trivial!
