My question is: given an abelian group $G$ with addition $+$, is there some *natural* multiplicative structure that arises so that we can define a ring $(G, +, \cdot)$. For instance, multiplication on $\mathbb{Z}$ and $\mathbb{Z}_n$ are entirely determined by addition, since it must be that $ma = a + \ldots + a$, where the addition is $m$ times.

For finitely generated abelian groups $G$, we know that its representation according to the Fundamental Theorem of Finitely Generated Abelian Groups is

$$G = \mathbb{Z}_{p_1^{r_1}} \times \ldots \times \mathbb{Z}_{p_n^{r_n}} \times \mathbb{Z} \times \ldots \times \mathbb{Z}$$

Since each of those factors has a natural ring structure, we can define a ring structure on $G$ as the product of these ring structures. That leaves the question: can we define a "natural" ring structure on infinitely generated abelian groups $G$?
