AdS/CFT notes!

  1. Feb 14, 2012 #1
    I am studying Witten's papers on AdS/CFT. But I don't have any CFT or SUSY background. Can anyone suggest me some lecture notes or books where I can have illustrative ideas on Ads/CFT correspondence? I do have Nastase's notes.It is really good but too short for introduction!

    I've been slowly trying to learn about this too. Two sets of notes that seem friendlier to me are McGreevy's and Sundrum's.

    You could try the latest edition of Zwiebach's book on String Theory. That contains a section on AdS/CFT.
