Dear retro fans,

I sometimes lack the definitions of some themes you are
speaking about and related to retroanalysis. Could someone
be kind enough to complete/correct the following list?
For example, Phoenix is in fact : the piece is captured
then a pawn is promoted to that piece?

Valladao-Monteiro : Castling+ep capture+promotion.
Allumwandlung (AUW) : Promotion in all 4 figures.
Phoenix : A piece is replaced by a promotee.
Ceriani-Frolkin promotion: A promotion followed by the capture of the promotee.
Schnoebelen promotion : A promotee is captured on its promotion square.
Switchback : A piece moves and comes back.
? : Switchback of a piece which is then captured on its home square.
Massacre : Almost every move is a capture.
At home : All pieces of (at least) one camp seem to be on their home square.
Pronkin : ?
? : ?
