Via a simplified version of the arguments used in [32] for the Galois structure between Mon and Gp, it is not difficult to see that the reflection of the adjunction between SRng and Rng is admissible with respect to the classes of surjective homomorphisms both in SRng and in Rng.

HE schemes were originally known as privacy homomorphism, which was introduced by Rivest [39], shortly after the invention of the RSA cryptosystem.
If G = G1 = G2 then the homomorphism is called an endomorphism and the isomorphism is called an automorphism.
It can be shown that kernels of sup-algebra homomorphisms are sup-algebra congruences.
The suspension homomorphism is the result of the following compositions:
In this paper, we introduce a new algebraic structure, called SU-algebra and a concept of ideal and homomorphisms in SU-algebra.
In any case f is a group homomorphism and if V=eA, f is a ring homomorphism.
This is accomplished by linking the moment generating function of the Wishart distribution with these homomorphisms via Theorem 3.
Further directions of the development of this topic will concern the reflectivity of the category JS of all join spaces and their inclusion homomorphisms.
A wide-sense homomorphic encoder is a machine M = (U, Y, S, [omega], v), where the input alphabet U, the output alphabet Y, and the state set S are groups, and the next state map v and the output(encoder) map [omega] are, respectively, surjective and injective homomorphisms defined on an extension U [?
