AdS/CFT mappings

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.
