Is there a relationship between the homotopy groups of a pair (X,A) and of the quotient X/A ? It feels like they should be equal under mild hypothesis.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

More precisely, I am interested in the case where X is a smooth manifold and A a submanifold.

Thx
