An **isogeny** of abelian varieties is a surjective morphism with finite kernel; it is a morphism of algebraic varieties (of the same dimension) and a group homomorphism (with finite kernel).

Two abelian varieties are **isogenous** if there is an isogeny between them. This defines an equivalence relation which determines the set of isogeny classes of abelian varieties.
