Abstract: The classical Lefschetz hyperplane theorem gives a deep relation between the topology of an algebraic variety X and the intersection of X with a hyperplane, called a hyperplane section of X. I will explain a way to ``quantize'' this statement. Namely, to relate the quantum cohomology of X with its hyperplane section. This is based on a joint project with Honglu Fan (ETH Zurich)
