A group is termed conjugacy-separable if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

  1. Every element in it is a conjugacy-distinguished element.
  2. Given any two elements in it that are not conjugate, there exists a finite quotient group where their images are also not conjugate.
  3. It is a residually finite group and, under the natural embedding into its profinite completion (note that the map is an embedding because it is residually finite), the group is a conjugacy-closed subgroup of the profinite completion.
