This encyclopedic reference is a favourite among string theorists.

reviews

An Introduction to Conformal Field Theory
by M.R. Gaberdiel (hep-th/9910156, 69 pages)

Conformal field theory: a case study
by Krzysztof Gawedzki (hep-th/9904145, 55 pages, 21 figures)
These lecture notes are devoted to the Wess-Zumino-Witten model of two-dimensional conformal field theory.

Applied Conformal Field Theory
by P. Ginsparg (hep-th/9108028)
These lecture notes are a valuable reference on conformal field theory and Kac-Moody algebras.

Introduction to Conformal Field Theory
by A. N. Schellekens
These are notes based on lectures given at schools in Germany and Spain in 1995.
