Let \({I\subset\mathbb{R}}\) be a nonempty open interval and let \({L:I^2\to I}\) be a fixed strict mean. A function \({M:I^2\to I}\) is said to be an L-conjugate mean on I if there exist \({p,q\in{]}0,1]}\) and a strictly monotone and continuous function φ such that
for all \({x,y\in I}\) . Here L(x, y) is a fixed quasi-arithmetic mean. We will solve the equality problem in this class of means.
