# Isomorphic of (N,+)?

Does a binary operation * exist such that (N;+) and (Z;*) are isomorphic? N : set of natural numbers, Z : set of integers and + is the addition operation. If yes, please give me an isomorphism function?

Whenever you have two sets that are in bijection you can "transport" an operation, or any other algebraic structure, from one to the other. Namely, if $A$ is set endowed with an operation $+$ and $f:A\rightarrow B$ is a bijection of sets, you can define an operation $\ast$ on $B$ simply as $$b\ast b^\prime=f(a+a^\prime)$$ where $a$ and $a^\prime$ are the unique elements in $A$ such that $f(a)=b$ and $f(a^\prime)=b^\prime$. Then $(B,\ast)$ is isomoprphic to $(A,+)$ by construction.
This can be applied to the question's case since there are surely bijections ${\Bbb N}\rightarrow{\Bbb Z}$. The problem is that the operations on $\Bbb Z$ that you construct in this way are very artificial and quite uninteresting.
