## Abstract:

We discuss Lagrangian cobordism between Lagrangian submanifolds (in the monotone setting) and we show that Lagrangian Floer and quantum homologies are rigid with respect to this type of cobordism. We also discuss obstructions to cobordism based on properties of Lagrangian quantum homology, relations to Lagrangian surgery, as well as examples of non-isotopic but cobordant Lagrangians. Finally, Lagrangian cobordism is used to structure the respective class of Lagrangians as a category and the results of the paper are interpreted as indicating the existence of a functor defined on this category with values in an appropriate (derived) Fukaya category and which is compatible with the triangulated structure of the target.## References
