Item description for Conformal Field Theory by Sergei V. Ketov...

Conformal field theory is an elegant and powerful theory in the field of high energy physics and statistics. In fact, it can be said to be one of the greatest achievements in the development of this field. Presented in two dimensions, this book is designed for students who already have a basic knowledge of quantum mechanics, field theory and general relativity. The main idea used throughout the book is that conformal symmetry causes both classical and quantum integrability. Instead of concentrating on the numerous applications of the theory, the author puts forward a discussion of the general methods of conformal field theory as a physical theory. Hence the book provides in a self-contained way the necessary knowledge and "conformal" intuition which underline the various applications of conformal field theory. It is aimed to assist students and professionals in the study of the theory from its first principles and in applying the methods in their own research. The first of its kind, this book promises to give a detailed and comprehensive insight into the workings of conformal field theory.

Reviews - What do customers think about Conformal Field Theory?

a reference on CFT  Oct 27, 2006
Ketov's CFT is a very concise review of CFT and its applications to string theory and statistical mechanics. It is written well, although some effort has to be put into it to grasp all topics; more effort than with the book by di Francesco et al.. The book is nearly self-contained and might serve as a reference on CFT with some interesting examples. Each chapter provides some problems (mainly within the text) that are generally intended to do the steps between derivations. It is comparable to di Francesco's book, but on some topics they complement each other, where di Francesco presents the subjects slightly more detailed. Ketov's presentation is somewhat more mathematically oriented than di Francesco's. All in all, a very useful book on CFT for graduates.
