This function checks the isomorphism of two balanced covering stars of `PG(n-1,2)`

. If they are isomorphic, it returns the list of isomorphism establishing collineations. The option is provided to enumerate all isomorphism establishing collineations or to terminate after the first one is found.

1 | ```
checkStarIsomorphism(star1, star2, returnfirstIEC = FALSE)
``` |

`star1` |
A star of |

`star2` |
A star of |

`returnfirstIEC` |
An indicator of whether all isomorphism establishing collineations (IECs) should be returned (default), or terminate only after the first one is found. |

This code considers all possible collineations of `PG(n-1,2)`

to search for isomorphism establishing collineations from star1 to star2. The search is conducted by first projecting onto a lower dimensional space described as Algorithm 2 in Spencer et al. (2019). Equivalence is assessed using the bitstring comparison method described in Spencer et al. (2019). Both input stars should be formatted as 3-dimensional arrays with `star1[i,j,k]`

indicating whether or not the `i`

th basic factor is present in the `j`

th effect of the `k`

th flat of star1.

A list containing two objects. The first object is a Boolean indicating whether or not star1 is isomorphic to star2. If isomorphic, the second object is a list of isomorphism establishing collineation matrices. If not isomorphic, the second object is NA.

## Example 1: Two stars of PG(4,2) consisting of 4-flats
data(starn5t3a)
data(starn5t3b)
test1 <- checkStarIsomorphism(starn5t3a, starn5t3b, returnfirstIEC = TRUE)
test1$result # the test indicates that they are isomorphic
(IECstar <- test1$IECs[[1]]) # the first IEC
## Example 2: Two stars of PG(7,2) consisting of 6-flats
data(starn8t5a)
data(starn8t5b)
test2 <- checkStarIsomorphism(starn8t5a, starn8t5b, returnfirstIEC = TRUE)
test2$result
