Abstract: I will begin with an overview of the work of Loewner-Nirenberg on constructing complete conformal metrics of constant negative scalar curvature on domains in Euclidean space, and the question of regularity up to the boundary.
I will then describe some fully nonlinear generalizations of their work, and some recent joint work with R. Graham on the geometric content of these generalizations and boundary/interior regularity issues that arise in their study.
