1. Maths
a. (of two angles) having a sum of 360°
b. (of two complex numbers) differing only in the sign of the imaginary part as 4 + 3i and 4 -- 3i
c. (of two algebraic numbers) being roots of the same irreducible algebraic equation with rational coefficients
d. (of two elements of a square matrix) interchanged when the rows and columns are interchanged
e. (of two arcs) forming a complete circle or other closed curved figure

Striker and Williams made use of the same argument to obtain the conjugacy of promotion and rowmotion (their name for the Fon-Der-Flaass action) in section 6 of Striker and Williams (2012), so it should be no surprise that our induced actions reduce to promotion in types A and B.
