A nilmanifold admits an Anosov diffeomorphism if and only if its fundamental group (which is finitely generated, torsion-free and nilpotent) supports an automorphism having no eigenvalues of absolute value one. Here we concentrate on nilpotency class 2 and fundamental groups whose commutator subgroup is of maximal torsion-free rank. We prove that the corresponding nilmanifold admits an Anosov diffeomorphism if and only if the torsion-free rank of the abelianization of its fundamental group is greater than or equal to 3.
