Oops, thanks for the correction.

I was thinking about translation because I was noticing that if \\(\leq\\) is a monoidal poset then for every [affine transformation](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affine_transformation) \\(A\\) there corresponds a monoidal preorder \\(\preceq_A\\), where

x \preceq_A y \iff A(x) \leq A(y)

I was thinking of this because affine transforms preserve addition and little else. Since affine transformations can all be expressed as \\(A(x) = \mathbf{a} x + \mathbf{b}\\), I was erroneously thinking that translation would lead to distinct posets/preorders.

An affine transformation without a translation term is just a [linear map](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_map).

So now I am wondering: if I have two isomorphic monoidal posets \\(\langle \mathbb{C}, +, 0, \leq_1\\rangle\\) and \\(\langle \mathbb{C}, +, 0, \leq_2\\rangle\\), then is their isomorphism function \\(\phi : \mathbb{C} \to \mathbb{C}\\) a linear map?
