Abstract

We consider product 4–manifolds S1 × M, where M is a closed, connected and oriented 3–manifold. We prove that if S1 × M admits a complex structure or a Lefschetz or Seifert fibration, then the following statement is true:

S1 × M admits a symplectic structure if and only if M fibers over S1,

under the additional assumption that M has no fake 3–cells. We also discuss the relationship between the geometry of M and complex structures and Seifert fibrations on S1 × M.
