operators in maximally supersymmetric CFTs

The AdS/CFT correspondence is used to calculate
2- and 3-point functions of chiral operators in certain
maximally supersymmetric strongly coupled CFTs.
These CFTs are related to the low energy dynamics of D3, M2 and M5
branes of string/M theory. The D3 case correspond to d=4, N=4
SU(N) super Yang Mills theory at large N, while the other two cases
are related to more exotic CFTs living in three and six dimensions.
These various cases are treated simultaneously by using a gravitational
action in arbitrary dimension D, coupled to a (p+1)-form and
suitably compactified on AdS(D-p-2)xS(p+2).
