Abstract (summary)

We define a new family of open Gromov-Witten type invariants based on intersection theory on the moduli space of pseudoholomorphic curves of arbitrary genus with boundary in a Lagrangian submanifold. We assume the Lagrangian submanifold arises as the fixed points of an anti-symplectic involution and has dimension 2 or 3. In the strongly semi-positive genus 0 case, the new invariants coincide with Welschinger's invariant counts of real pseudoholomorphic curves.

Furthermore, we calculate the new invariant for the real quintic threefold in genus 0 and degree 1 to be 30. The techniques we introduce lay the groundwork for verifying predictions of mirror symmetry for the real quintic.
