# Abelian group

## group whose group operation is commutative / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In group theory, an **abelian group** is a group with operation that is commutative. Because of that, an abelian group is sometimes called a ‘commutative group’.

A group in which the group operation is not commutative is called a ‘non-abelian group’ or ‘non-commutative group’.
