Point-like bounding chains in open Gromov-Witten theory

Over a decade ago Welschinger defined invariants of real symplectic manifolds of complex dimensions 2 and 3, which count $J$-holomorphic disks with boundary and interior point constraints.

Absolute vs. Relative Gromov-Witten invariants

We compare absolute and relative Gromov-Witten invariants with the basic contact vector for very positive divisors. For such divisors, one might expect that these invariants are the same up to a natural multiple.
