I would like to know of a list of pedagogical/classic/nice papers that study stringy effects in the bulk. May be a sequence which a student follows to understand the stringy nature that is at play.

    $\begingroup$ This strikes me as too broad as is, but it could be modified a bit to fit under our recommendation policy I think. $\endgroup$ – David Z Dec 9 '13 at 9:00

  • $\begingroup$ In my expectation, a description of exclusively stringy effects in the bulk in the context of the AdS/CFT business should rather be quite specific (excitations). So the question does not look too broad to me. $\endgroup$ – Dilaton Jan 15 '14 at 11:44

    $\begingroup$ If it is specific, then this is a reference request. But it's not as specific as most reference requests as it is not addressing a particular study, more of a class of studies. As a resource recommendation it seems too narrow. Not sure, bring this up on meta if you wish, @Dilaton. There is a fuzzy region between ref-req and resource-req that is not clear policywise. $\endgroup$ – Manishearth Jan 16 '14 at 9:59
