Poincar-Einstein manifolds are a class of noncompact Riemannian manifolds with a well- defined boundary at infinity. They appear as the framework of AdS/CFT correspondence in string theory and have been studied intensively. I will discuss some recent results relating the Yamabe invariant of the boundary and that of the interior. The talk is based on joint work with my student Zhixin Wang.
