Definition

A complete map from a group G to itself is a bijection \varphi:G \to G such that the map g \mapsto g \varphi(g) is also a bijection.

Note that if \alpha is an automorphism of G, the map g \mapsto \alpha(g^{-1}) is a complete map if and only if \alpha is a fixed-point-free automorphism.
