**Complete Set Of Invariants**

In mathematics, a complete set of invariants for a classification problem is a collection of maps

(where *X* is the collection of objects being classified, up to some equivalence relation, and the are some sets), such that ∼ if and only if for all *i*. In words, such that two objects are equivalent if and only if all invariants are equal.

Symbolically, a complete set of invariants is a collection of maps such that

is injective.

As invariants are, by definition, equal on equivalent objects, equality of invariants is a *necessary* condition for equivalence; a *complete* set of invariants is a set such that equality of these is *sufficient* for equivalence. In the context of a group action, this may be stated as: invariants are functions of coinvariants (equivalence classes, orbits), and a complete set of invariants characterizes the coinvariants (is a set of defining equations for the coinvariants).

### Famous quotes containing the words complete and/or set:

“Could slavery suggest a more *complete* servility than some of these journals exhibit? Is there any dust which their conduct does not lick, and make fouler still with its slime?”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“I *set* out as a sort of self-dependent politician. My opinions were my own. I dashed at all prejudices. I scorned to follow anybody in matter of opinion.... All were, therefore, offended at my presumption, as they deemed it.”

—William Cobbett (1762–1835)
