Abstract: Our main goal is to determine the general solution of the functional equation

\begin{displaymath}\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {{f_1}(xy) + {f_2}(x{y^{ - 1}}) = {f_... ...,} \\ {{f_i}(txy) = {f_i}(tyx)\qquad (i = 1,2)} \\ \end{array} \end{displaymath}

where $ {f_i}$ are complex-valued functions defined on a group. This equation contains, among others, an equation of H. Swiatak whose general solution was not known until now and an equation studied by K.S. Lau in connection with a characterization of Rao's quadratic entropies. Special cases of this equation also include the Pexider, quadratic, d'Alembert and Wilson equations.
