An invertible function f between topological spaces such that f and f-1 are both continuous. Topology does not really distinguish between homeomorphic spaces. A sphere and the surface of a cube are homeomorphic; so -- as the cliche example goes -- are the surfaces of a donut and a mug.
Ho`me*o*mor"phism (?), n. [See Homeomorphous.]
A near similarity of crystalline forms between unlike chemical compounds. See Isomorphism.
