Abstract: Let $ ({M^n},g)$ be a complete noncompact Riemannian manifold with the curvature bounded between two negative constants. Given a function $ K$ on $ {M^n}$, in terms of the behaviors of $ K$ at infinite, we give a fairly complete answer to when the $ K$ can be the scalar curvature function of a complete metric $ {g_1}$ which is conformal to $ g$.
