Introductory book CFT

  1. Apr 20, 2010 #1
    Can anybody suggest a good introductory book on CFT.

    I would like to learn String Theory; and this is my basic motivation to learn CFT...

    DiFrancesco et al, simply the best :) It's big, but it has basically everything you want to know about CFT's on a very basic level.

    For an introductory level, try Ginsparg: http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9108028

    DiFrancesco is the standard reference, but more appropiate later on.
