Moreover, they proved that the spaces [F.sup.2.sub.(n)](C) are isomorphic and isometric to [L.sub.2](R) [R] [cross product] [H.sub.n-1], where [H.sub.n-1] is the one-dimensional space generated by Hermite function of order n - 1.

If for each group H such that the monoids End(G) and End(H) are isomorphic implies an isomorphism between G and H, we say that the group G is determined by its endomorphism monoid in the class of all groups.
The authors showed that G[u.sub., n] was the disjoint union of isomorphic copies of their special subgraph [F.sub.u, n], the generalized Farey graph, coming from the use of the subgroup [[GAMMA].sub.0] (n) of [GAMMA].
If an m-polar fuzzy graph [G.sub.1] is coweak isomorphic to [G.sub.2] and if [G.sub.1] is regular then [G.sub.2] is also regular.
Two signed graphs [S.sub.1] and [S.sub.2] are cycle isomorphic if there exists an isomorphism f : [greater than or equal to]1 [right arrow] [[SIGMA].sub.2], where [[SIGMA].sub.1] and [[SIGMA].sub.2] are underlying graph of [S.sub.1] and [S.sub.2], respectively, such that the sign of every cycle [SIGMA] in [S.sub.1] equals the sign of f(Z) in [S.sub.2].
(d) If [absolute value of G] = 3, then G is isomorphic to [K.sub.3]; if [absolute value of G] = 4, then G is isomorphic to [K.sub.4]; if [absolute value of G] = 5, then G is isomorphic to [K.sub.5]-e, where [member of] is any edge of [K.sub.5].
