These notes develop a theory of restricted orbit equivalence
which has as particular examples Ornstein's isomorphism theorem
for Bernoulli processes, Dye's orbit equivalence theorem for ergodic
processes and the theory of Kakutani equivalence developed by
Feldman, Ornstein, Weiss and Katok. Other examples are also given.
A number of results from the Bernoulli theory are shown to be true
for any restricted orbit equivalence.
