Re: metric space Isometry

It's an inversion about the circle . It's the only map that I know of that preserves the points on the circle but is not the identity. Basically, an inversion takes points outside the circle and puts them inside the circle, and takes points inside the circle and puts them outside the circle. It also preserves angles from the origin. The distance (calculated the normal way) from any point to the origin before the transformation is r, and after the transformation is .
