Symmetry means different things to different people. Fundamentally, however, two systems should be considered symmetric if they behave identically, and two components of a system should be considered symmetric if they are indistinguishable. This is consistent with the definition of symmetry used in graph theory, where two graphs are considered symmetric if there is an isomorphism mapping one to the other and two components of a graph are symmetric if there is an automorphism of the graph… CONTINUE READING
