This property of topological spaces is defined as the property of the following associated group: fundamental group having the following group property: Abelian group

Definition

A topological space is said to have Abelian fundamental group if it is path-connected and the fundamental group at any point is Abelian.

Products

This property of topological spaces is closed under taking arbitrary products
View all properties of topological spaces closed under products

This corresponds to the algebraic fact that a direct product of Abelian groups is Abelian.

Retract-hereditariness

This property of topological spaces is hereditary on retracts, viz if a space has the property, so does any retract of it
View all retract-hereditary properties of topological spaces

This corresponds to the algebraic fact that a group-theoretic retract of an Abelian group is Abelian.
