Abstract

We study the following problem for closed connected oriented manifolds M of dimension 4. Let A be the integral group ring of the fundamental group of M. Suppose that a subset G of H_2(M; A) is a free A-submodule. When do there exist closed connected 4-manifolds P and M´ such that M is homotopy equivalent to the connected sum P # M´, where the fundamental group of P is isomorphic to the fundamental group of M, the fundamental group of M' is isomorphic to 0, and the tensor product of H_2 (M´ ; Z) with A over Z is isomorphic to G. An answer is given in terms of the fundamental group of M and the intersection forms on H_2 (M ; A) and H_2 (M ; Z).
