Mirror symmetry predicts the existence of Floer invariants that yield “local” information. Guided by this, we construct a quantitative symplectic cohomology theory that detects Floer-essential Lagrangians within subdomains. We illustrate the quantitative behavior of this theory by examining negative line bundles over toric symplectic manifolds.
