Essays & Worksheets on
Evaluating Similarities & Identities 

Edward G. Rozycki, Ed.D.

edited 5/13/18


The essays and worksheets below have been developing in response to both student and website visitor inquiries as to how to judge the nature and extent of program isomorphism, i.e. similarity and identity in program structure. (A related question was how to judge the goodness of a theory.)

I have tried to reference common interactions with notions related to isomorphism, e.g. map, template, pattern, poetic structure, rhythm, etc., and to use as informal a language as possible. (These essays and exercises are not intended for mathematically experienced readers.)

The development of this set of essays is in process. Live links indicate finished (at least for the time being) documents.
