Homomorphic transformations for algebraic structures
Homomorphic Transformations: WHY and possible ways to HOW
Miroslav Novotný, Oldřich Kopeček, Jan Chvalina
The book presents investigations of problems of homomorphic transformations for algebraic structures. It focuses on possibilities of constructions of homomorphisms. These questions are an essential part of many problems in mathematics and other disciplines, e.g. computer science. Thus the book turns on mathematicians or advanced students and on other specialists, who use mathematical methods, interested in getting to know several constructional methods for algebraic structures. One chapter of the book provides answers to the question why homomorphisms. The remaining chapters answer the other difficult questions how homomorphisms. First, it takes place for simple algebraic structures called mono-unary algebras, further, for algebras in general and, finally, for relational structures.
