Abstract : We let $(M,g)$ be a noncompact complete Riemannian manifold of dimension $n \ge 3$ with finite volume and positive scalar curvature. We show the existence of a conformal metric with constant positive scalar curvature on $(M,g)$ by gluing solutions of Yamabe equation on each compact subsets $K_i$ with $ \cup K_i =M $.
