I'm looking to start learning the basics of AdS/CFT, in particular AdS/CFT integrability, over the summer before I start grad school. By the time I finish my undergrad I will have a good background in QFT (first 12 chapters of Peskin & Schroeder), GR (Sean Carroll's notes and Wald), quantum integrability (doing a research project in this area) as well as various pure maths subjects (relevant ones probably being algebraic topology, functional analysis and representation theory). I know a little CFT already but not much. I don't know any Super Yang Mills yet either.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm looking for everything I need to get acquainted with AdS/CFT. I've looked at the review papers by Beisert et al but the non-integrability stuff is a bit over my head. I'm guessing Strings are necessary. Please list any books, review papers etc I should look at. Thanks!
