Abstract:

An abelian group is said to be \aleph_1–free if all its countable subgroups are free. Our main result is:If R is a ring with R^+ free and |R|<\lambda\leq 2^{\aleph_0}, then there exists an \aleph_1–free abelian group G of cardinality \lambda with {\rm End} G = R.

A corollary to this theorem is:

Indecomposable \aleph_1–free abelian groups of cardinality \aleph_1 do exist.
