Definition

Symbol-free definition

A group whose automorphism group is transitive on non-identity elements is a group with the property that given any two non-identity elements of the group, there exists an automorphism of the group sending the first to the second.

Definition with symbols

Let G be a group. Then we say that the automorphism group of G is transitive on non-identity elements if, given any two non-identity elements g,h \in G, there exists \sigma \in \operatorname{Aut}(G) such that \sigma(g) = h.

Note that for an Abelian group, this is equivalent to the property of being the additive group of a field.
