Description
It needs a little work to change "abelian" to "Abelian", as some of the strings are generated. This is kind of spin-off from #19753.

Replying to jhpalmieri:
There is no compelling reason to change "abelian" to "Abelian". I think this should be closed.
Not a big thing, but this would be consistent with for example #19788. At least Wikipedia uses always caps for Abelian, Hamiltonian etc.
(But of course english is not my own language, so I let others to decide this.)

That is, I don't think there is consistency in the mathematical world for the capitalization, or not, of "abelian".

Someone once joked to me that Abel has received the greatest prize in mathematics, a lowercase letter. It's fairly ubiquitous to use "abelian", so I would suggest closing this ticket.

OK, please mark positive review. (Or actually, Volker will decide when closing this.)
