Symbol-free definition

A subgroup of a group is termed conjugate-commensurable if it is commensurable with each of its conjugate subgroups. Equivalently, its commensurator in the whole group is the whole group.

Definition with symbols

A subgroup H of a group G is termed a conjugate-commensurable subgroup if, for any g \in G, H \cap gHg^{-1} has finite index in both H and gHg^{-1}.
