AdS/CFT mappings

  1. Oct 11, 2006 #1
    Hi, this is my first post. I've been studying the AdS/CFT
    correspondance recently, and though I am familiar with the relativistic
    calculations required, the aspects of the conformal field theory are
    still new to me. Does anyone know a good primer for such material?
    Namely, I am interested in learning the significance of correlation
    functions, and how to calculate them from a purely quantum field/string
    theoretic perspective. Wikipedia has little to say on the matter, as
    does mathworld or any other website. Ideally I'd like to find is a
    complete set of pdf lecture notes that covers k-form EM fields,
    correlation functions, the dilaton field, and the axion field. Thanks
    in advance for your replies.
