A complete classification of Hamiltonian circle actions (that is, periodic Hamiltonian flows or Hamiltonian S 1 -spaces) on compact 4-dimensional manifolds is given: first studying how to characterize the isomorphic S 1 -spaces, and second, listing all these spaces and determining the kind of invariant symplectic forms with which the manifolds are endowed. In this way, this work completes some previous ones on the same subject: see e.g.: M. Audin [in Géométrie symplectique et mécanique, Colloq. Int. Sémin. Sud-Rhodan. Géom. V, La Grande Motte/Fr. 1988, Lect. Notes Math. 1416, 1-25 (1990; Zbl 0699.58031)], and K. Ahara and A. Hattori [J. Fac. Sci., Univ. Tokyo, Sect. IA 38, 251-298 (1991; Zbl 0749.53018)]. It is also proved that all these compact 4-dimensional Hamiltonian S 1 -spaces are Kähler manifolds, but this result does not hold for higher-order dimensional manifolds. (Zentralblatt)
