# TASI Lectures: Introduction to the AdS/CFT Correspondence

@article{Klebanov2000TASILI, title={TASI Lectures: Introduction to the AdS/CFT Correspondence}, author={Igor R. Klebanov}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2000} }

This is an introductory review of the AdS/CFT correspondence and of the ideas that led to its formulation. We show how comparison of stacks of D3-branes with corresponding supergravity solutions leads to dualities between conformal large $N$ gauge theories in 4 dimensions and string backgrounds of the form $AdS_5\times X_5$ where $X_5$ is an Einstein manifold. The gauge invariant chiral operators of the field theory are in one-to-one correspondence with the supergravity modes, and their…
