Nevertheless, Pollitt (2001) categorized isomorphism into two theoretical approaches, the functional approach and the constructive approach.
Pressure from external resource providers may result in coercive isomorphism during the process of obtaining these resources (Carpenter & Feroz, 2001, p.
Then there exist a group isomorphism [empty set] from G onto G' such that [empty set](a) = a' for every a [member of] G and a' [member of] G'.
As the algebra of a finite groupoid is a weak Hopf algebra, this isomorphism endows the partial skew group algebra with a weak Hopf algebra structure.
min] are uniquely determined up to the isomorphism.
In Section I, we formally define a BACAP and establish the isomorphism allowing us to show that a BACAP is equivalent to its dual.
Nevertheless, the existing state of the organizational field may already result in organizational processes at the organizational field level, such as institutional isomorphism.
By routine calculations, f: H [right arrow] K is a weak isomorphism between H and K.
The WDCCG model which wiped off all of the simple joints and simple joint links form the multiple joint kinematic chain can improve the efficiency of isomorphism identification.
But "Babai is very smart and reliable and one of the top world experts on the graph isomorphism problem," Immerman says.
Regarding, the structural comparison, it has a slightly difference with the StCoBP one, because d their r uses the A* algorithm to find inexact matching by editing nodes and edges of the BP in order to generate a BP similar to a query BP; while StCoBP uses the VF2 graph isomorphism algorithm which only find exact matches between substructures of the compared BP.
Seeking to assess legitimacy and strategic resource, Queiroz, Vasconcelos and Goldszmidt (2007) observed that institutional entrepreneurship involves ambiguity and contradiction and, although it aims for differentiation, involves isomorphism.
