The category of abelian groups is the full large subcategory of the category of groups consisting of groups of which the group operation is commutative.


The large category of abelian groups

Ab-Large-Category : Large-Category lsuc (_⊔_)
Ab-Large-Category =
    ( Group-Large-Category)
    ( is-abelian-prop-Group)

The large precategory of abelian groups

Ab-Large-Precategory : Large-Precategory lsuc (_⊔_)
Ab-Large-Precategory =
  large-precategory-Large-Category Ab-Large-Category

The category of abelian groups of a given universe level

Ab-Category : (l : Level)  Category (lsuc l) l
Ab-Category = category-Large-Category Ab-Large-Category

The precategory of abelian groups of a given universe level

Ab-Precategory : (l : Level)  Precategory (lsuc l) l
Ab-Precategory = precategory-Large-Category Ab-Large-Category

The forgetful functor from abelian groups to groups

forgetful-functor-Ab :
  functor-Large-Category  l  l) Ab-Large-Category Group-Large-Category
forgetful-functor-Ab =
    ( Group-Large-Category)
    ( is-abelian-prop-Group)
