Abstract: In this paper we study certain vanishing identities for Gromov-Witten invariants conjectured by K. Liu and H. Xu. We will prove their conjectures when the summation range is big compared to the genus. In such cases, we actually obtained vanishing identities which are stronger than their conjectures. We also prove these conjectures in low genus cases.
