For a trivial elliptic fibration X=C×SX=C×S with C an elliptic curve and S a projective K3 surface of Picard rank 1, we study how various notions of stability behave under the Fourier–Mukai autoequivalence ΦΦ on Db(X)Db(X), where ΦΦ is induced by the classical Fourier–Mukai autoequivalence on Db(C)Db(C). We show that, under some restrictions on Chern classes, Gieseker semistability on coherent sheaves is preserved under ΦΦ when the polarisation is ‘fiber-like’. Moreover, for more general choices of Chern classes, Gieseker semistability under a ‘fiber-like’ polarisation corresponds to a notion of μ∗μ∗-semistability defined by a ‘slope-like’ function μ∗μ∗.
