Supersymmetry and Branes in M-theory Plane-waves

  title={Supersymmetry and Branes in M-theory Plane-waves},
  author={Nakwoo Kim},
We study brane embeddings in M-theory plane-waves and their supersymmetry. The relation with branes in AdS backgrounds via the Penrose limit is also explored. Longitudinal planar branes are originated from AdS branes while giant gravitons of AdS spaces become spherical branes which are realized as fuzzy spheres in the massive matrix theory.
