If $G$ is a group and $x\in G$, the **conjugacy class** of $x$ is the set $\{gxg^{-1}\mid g\in G\}$. These sets partition $G$, and the set of conjugacy classes is denoted by $G^\natural$.

Since conjugation by fixed $g\in G$ is an automorphism of a $G$, all conjugate elements have the same order in the group.
