A conjugacy class is part of a group.

Let $G$ be a group. Consider the action of $G$ on itself by inner automorphisms. The orbits of $G$ are then called conjugacy classes.

Two subsets $H$ and $H'$ of $G$ are called conjugate if there exists $\alpha \in G$ for which $H$ is the image of $H'$ under $\text{Int}(\alpha)$.
