A projective transformation is a morphism of $P^n$ to $P^n$, for some $n$, determined by an $(n + 1) \times (n + 1)$ invertible matrix $A$ in the obvious way. The sets $Q$, $R$ are projectively equivalent if and only if there exists a projective transformation $f$ such that $f(Q) = R$.

I would like to know useful criteria to determine if two projective varieties are isomorphic or not.

Your last sentence is inconsistent with the title of the question; I guess "isomorphic" should be replaced by "projectively equivalent". –  Artie Prendergast-Smith Jul 8 '13 at 16:53
