Abstract

A useful tool in the study of the AdS/CFT correspondence is the renormalized volume. For four dimensional Poincare-Einstein manifolds, a theorem of Mike Anderson relates the renormalized volume and the Euler characteristic of the underlying manifold with boundary. We will discuss the extension of the renormalization procedure to curvature integrals on these manifolds and the proof of the corresponding Gauss-Bonnet theorem in all even dimensions.
