Hori and Walcher have suggested a Lefschetz type index theorem for B-twisted Landau-Ginzburg orientifolds, computing parity twisted open string Witten indices in terms of closed sector information. I will describe work in progress whose goal is to prove this formula, along with some of its generalizations.
