ABSTRACT | We note that under certain conditions, the area bounded by the logarithmic
image of a real plane curve is a half-integer multiple of pi square. The half-integer number
can be interpreted as the quantum index of the real curve and used to refine real enumerative
invariants. The result agrees with the Block-G?ttsche numbers from the tropical world.
