This chapter provides a summary of some of the most important aspects of the AdS/CFT correspondence, together with pointers to some of the vast number of papers that have been published on this subject. The AdS/CFT correspondence is one of the most exciting discoveries in theoretical physics of the past 20 years, providing a framework in which it is possible to study strongly coupled field theories using weakly coupled gravity, and at the same time yielding a non-perturbative definition of quantum gravity in anti-de Sitter space.

Keywords:   AdS/CFT, anti-de Sitter space, strongly coupled field theories, quantum gravity
