Hi, this is my first post. I've been studying the AdS/CFT(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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.
