Is there any infinite noncyclic group whose automorphism group is abelian..can we find a sufficient condition for infinite group to have an abelian automorphism group Thank you
The finite abelian groups that can be the automorphism group of an infinite abelian group have been classified by Fournelle in [Finite groups of automorphisms of infinite groups II, J. of Algebra 80, 1983, 106 - 112, Theorem 1.2]:
There is an infinite abelian group $A$ with $Aut(A) = G$ for a finite abelian group $G$ iff $G$ is of even order and is a direct product of cyclic groups of orders 2, 3, and 4 with the property that if $G$ has an element of order 12 it also has an element of order 2 that is not a sixth power.
Examples of torsion-free groups $A$ with $Aut(A)=G$ for $G$ as above are constructed in [Fuchs: Infinite abelian groups II, Chap. XVI, Sect. 116] in examples 1, 2 and Theorem 116.2.
