Absolute Gromov-Witten theory is known to have many nice structural properties, such as quantum cohomology, WDVV equation, Givental's formalism, mirror theorem, CohFT etc.. In this talk, I will explain how to obtain parallel structures for relative Gromov-Witten theory via the relation between relative and orbifold Gromov-Witten invariants. This is based on joint works with Honglu Fan, Hsian-Hua Tseng and Longting Wu.
