We'll discuss asymptotically hyperbolic metrics and how they differ from asymptotically flat manifolds, including a notion of renormalized volume and a corresponding scalar curvature volume comparison result (this is joint work with S. Brendle). This has interesting consequences for large isoperimetric regions in such manifolds, which we will indicate.
