Hello, I hope I am in the right forum; if not, please feel free to move my topic with my apologies!
I am wondering if there is a word to denote that two shapes exist within the same larger shape. An analogy is concentric. I am looking for a word that means two shapes which share the same larger shape, just not necessarily the same center. I feel like there might be a word for it, but I just can't think of it and it has come up a few times in the past month or so where I wanted to use such a word. It's bugging me quite a bit.
I was trying to build the word myself, and the two best candidates I could conceive of were autogenous and homomorphic. Autogenous seems primarily referenced in medicine; however, homomorphic seems to have mathematical significance and is further divided into the following subset terms: "automorphic," "endomorphic," and "isomorphic." Do any of these fulfill the role I am looking for, or did I just imagine I once knew a term with this definition?
Here is the Wiki page from homomorphism: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homomorphism
Unfortunately, I don't understand it when I read it, which I fear indicates they're incompatible.
