Let M be a complete Einstein manifold of negative curvature, and assume that (as in the AdS/CFT correspondence) it has a Penrose compactification with a conformal boundary N of positive scalar curvature. We show that under these conditions, H_n(M;Z) = 0 and in particular N must be connected. These results resolve some puzzles concerning the AdS/CFT correspondence.
