Let and be compact Hausdorff spaces, and let and be topological involutions on and , respectively. In 1991, Kulkarni and Arundhathi characterized linear isometries from a real uniform function algebra on ( , ) onto a real uniform function algebra on ( , ) applying their Choquet boundaries and showed that these mappings are weighted composition operators. In this paper, we characterize all onto linear isometries and certain into linear isometries between and applying the extreme points in the unit balls of and .
