Maps can be seen as from polyhedra in origin to graphs in development through abstraction, he says, which is why algebraic graphs are much concerned with the present stage, He covers abstract graphs, abstract maps, duality, orientability, orientable maps, non-orientable maps, isomorphisms of maps, assymetrization, asymmetrized petal bundles, asymmetrized maps, maps within symmetry, genus polynomials, census with partitions, equations with partitions, upper maps of a graph, genera of a graph, isogemial graphs, and surface embeddability.
Furthermore different morphisms such as weak isomorphisms, co-weak isomorphism and isomorphisms are defined.
Isomorphisms in the category of sup-algebras and their homomorphisms are precisely surjective homomorphisms that are order-embeddings.
These authors observed that formal organizations, proposed by Meyer and Rowan (1977), are already established in modern society, and proposed that they continue to become more homogeneous as result of interaction processes, named isomorphisms, which occur in organizational fields and provide a context such that individual efforts to rationally deal with uncertainty and constraint lead to homogeneity in structure, culture and output.
We think that Sellars's views about 'that'-clauses and their role in meaning attributions provide a foundation for an account of how language can be understood as picturing the world without the need for any special representational relations, or even any explicit appeal to projections or isomorphisms.

Shea points out that Millikan's theory of content relies heavily on the existence of isomorphisms between a system of representations and the things in the world which they represent.
Moreover, this paper is to derive some straightforward consequences of the relations between quotient SU-algebras and isomorphisms and also investigate some of its properties.
