The study of Einstein metrics is a central area of research in geometry and analysis, for both mathematical and physical reasons. The simplest examples of Einstein metrics are symmetric spaces. In this article, we study symmetric spaces of noncompact type and their Einstein deformations in the spirit of the physical AdS/CFT correspondence, i.e. focusing on the relationship between Einstein metrics and (generalized) conformal structures on the boundary at infinity.
