### Abstract

In the following we show that a Stein filling S of the 3-torus T ^{3} is homeomorphic to D^{2} x T^{2}. In the proof we also show that if S is Stein and ∂S is diffeomorphic to the Seifert fibered 3-manifold -;∑(2,3,11) then b_{1}(S) = 0 and Q_{s} = H. Similar results are obtained for the Poincaré homology sphere ±∑(2,3,5); in studying these fillings we apply recent gauge theoretic results, and prove our theorems by determining certain Seiberg-Witten invariants.
