Open WDVV equations and Virasoro constraints

Arnold Mathematical Journal. 2019. Vol. 5. P. 145-186.
Basalaev A., Buryak A.

In their fundamental work, Dubrovin and Zhang, generalizing the Virasoro equations for the genus 0 Gromov–Witten invariants, proved the Virasoro equations for a descendent potential in genus 0 of an arbitrary conformal Frobenius manifold. More recently, a remarkable system of partial differential equations, called the open WDVV equations, appeared in the work of Horev and Solomon. This system controls the genus 0 open Gromov–Witten invariants. In our paper, for an arbitrary solution of the open WDVV equations, satisfying a certain homogeneity condition, we construct a descendent potential in genus 0 and prove an open analog of the Virasoro equations. We also present conjectural open Virasoro equations in all genera and discuss some examples.
