mathematical relation - a relation between mathematical expressions (such as equality or inequality)
expansion - a function expressed as a sum or product of terms; "the expansion of (a+b)^2 is a^2 + 2ab + b^2"

metric, metric function - a function of a topological space that gives, for any two points in the space, a value equal to the distance between them
transformation - (mathematics) a function that changes the position or direction of the axes of a coordinate system
isometry - a one-to-one mapping of one metric space into another metric space that preserves the distances between each pair of points; "the isometries of the cube"
