Homomorphism between Rings

Vinod S., Biju G. S., Minikumari N. S.


In this paper, using elementary algebra and analysis, we characterize and compute all ring homomorphism from \(\mathbb{Z}^n\) to \(\mathbb{Z}^m\) and from \(\mathbb{Q}^n\) to \(\mathbb{Q}^m\). Also, we characterize and compute all continuous ring homomorphism from \(\mathbb{R}^n\) to \(\mathbb{R}\).
