Let X be a 4-manifold obtained by gluing two symplectic 4-manifolds X i , i = 1, 2, along embedded surfaces. Using the gradient flow of a functional on 3-dimensional Seiberg-Witten theory along the cylindrical end, we study the Seiberg-Witten equations on X and have a product formula of Seiberg-Witten invariants on X from the ones on X i , i = 1, 2.
