# Einstein metrics with prescribed conformal infinity on the ball

@article{Graham1991EinsteinMW, title={Einstein metrics with prescribed conformal infinity on the ball}, author={C. Robin Graham and John M. Lee}, journal={Advances in Mathematics}, year={1991}, volume={87}, pages={186-225} }

In this paper we study a boundary problem for Einstein metrics. Let A4 be the interior of a compact (n + l)-dimensional manifold-with-boundary I@, and g a Riemannian metric on M. If 2 is a metric on bM, we say the conformal class [S] is the conformal infinity of g if, for some defining function p E P(ii;i) that is positive in A4 and vanishes to first order on bM, p2g extends continuously to A and p’g 1 TbM is conformal to g. It is clear that this an invariant notion, independent of the choice… Expand
