Introduction to AdS/CFT Duality
In these notes on the AdS/CFT correspondence I have tried to present the material as it was covered in the lectures given at the SERC school. The AdS/CFT correspondence (or duality) has been studied in great detail over last few years and there are several reviews are available in the literature. Some of the useful references are [2, 3, 4]1. It is not possible to cover the entire subject in these lecture notes, nor is it my intention to do so. I would, in fact, restrict myself to a simpler and modest goal of stating the correspondence and giving some elementary methods of doing checks on the predictions of this correspondence.
