Title:  An open string analog of Quantum Lefschetz theorem

Abstract:   I'll explain an open string analog of the Quantum Lefschetz theorem for quantum periods, which is the unit component of the small J-function. Recently, Tonkonog proved that the quantum periods, in particular, all descendant invariants with one point insertion of a Fano manifold can be recovered by the superpotential of a single monotone Lagrangian torus. Given a Lagrangian submanifold $L$ in a symplectic hypersurface $Y\subset X$, I'll explain how to obtain the superpotential of the "rim Lagrangian" $\tilde L$ by an extra term coming from the relative (descendant) Gromov-Witten invariant when X and Y both satisfy certain positivity assumptions. In spirit, this is also a special case of the surgery formula in the open-string context compared to the closed-string surgery formula derived by Li-Ruan.
