If F is inner automorphism , what does this mean ?

    if F is inner automorphism , what does this mean ?

    I think that if
    F : G to G
    we can write F(x) as
    F(x) = g x g^(-1)
    for some fixed g in G and all x in G

    that means that F moves X to the conjgation x by g

    is this right ?
