We keep following the same pattern as we have been doing for groups and rings. A morphisms between two fields is a structure-preserving map in a way that preserves the field properties.

Field Homomorphism

A field homomorphism between two fields 𝔸 and 𝔹 is a function

f : 𝔸 → 𝔹

such that ∀ x, y in 𝔸,

  1. f is congruent over +, or \[f(x + y) = f(x) + f(y)\]
  2. f is congruent over , or \[f( x ⋅ y) = f(x) ⋅ f(y)\]
  3. Identities are preserved, i.e. \[f(1) = 1\]

The fields are isomorphic if f is bijective.
