**Conformal Field Theory**

by P. Di Francesco, P. Mathieu, and D. Senechal (Springer Verlag, 1997)

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.
