We characterize those smooth 1-connected open 4-manifolds with certain finite type properties which admit proper special generic maps into 3-manifolds. As a corollary, we show that a smooth 4-manifold homeomorphic to R4 admits a proper special generic map into Rn for some n = 1, 2 or 3 if and only if it is diffeomorphic to R4. We also characterize those smooth 4-manifolds homeomorphic to L ×R for some closed orientable 3-manifold L which admit proper special generic maps into R3.

Let f : M → R be a smooth map of a closed n-dimensional manifold M into R (n ≥ p) which has only definite fold singularities as its singular points. Such a map is called a special generic map, which
