Is there a name of this function?

I was wondering if there is a name of the function that maps $(x_1, x_2,..., x_n)$ to $(x_1, x_2, ..., x_n, 0, 0, ..., 0)$? I know when we do it the other way around it's called the projection. And when there is no 0's it's called the identity map. Is there a special name for this one? Thanks!

"natural injection", perhaps. – David Mitra Jun 13 '13 at 13:36
"obvious embedding"? – Ilya Jun 13 '13 at 13:38
"natural embedding". Other permutations work too. – vadim123 Jun 13 '13 at 13:39
I've always heard it referred to as the inclusion map. This term can be used whenever we are identifying some object as a subspace of a "larger" one. – Tom Oldfield Jun 13 '13 at 13:41
Thanks guys! I reckon "inclusion map" is the one I was looking for(kind of forgot the term after years). The way I present it probably confused people. And that's probably the reason that you guys gave many different answers. – Evariste Jun 15 '13 at 1:33

Maps of this kind are injective and linear, so give a well defined injective linear map (or more generally, a homomorphism of modules). If we have such an inclusion $f:U\rightarrow V$ where $U$ and $V$ are groups (or vector spaces, or $R$ modules) then by the isomorphism theorem of your choice, we have $U \cong f(U)$ as groups (or vector spaces, or $R$ modules) which is exactly what we would expect, and just agrees with the fact that we expect the original object $U$ to be somehow embedded in the larger one $V$.
