A product formula for Seiberg-Witten invariants is proved in the case when the 4-manifold under examination is split along the Seifert fibered homology sphere ∑(2,3, 11). As an application of the formula homotopy K3 surfaces not containing any of the nuclei N(2)p,q are constructed. As another application we study embeddings of ∑(2, 3, 11) into homotopy K3 surfaces.
