In this doctoral thesis we study zero-mode spectra of Matrix theory and eleven-dimensional supergravity on the plane-wave background. This background is obtained via the Penrose limit of AdS_4 x S^7 and AdS_7 x S^4. The plane-wave background is a maximally supersymmetric spacetime supported by non-vanishing constant four-form flux in eleven-dimensional spacetime. First, we discuss the Matrix theory on the plane-wave background suggested by Berenstein, Maldacena and Nastase. We construct the…

PP-Wave Superalgebras of Supergravity Theories in Ten and Eleven Dimensions and Their Spectra
The duality between type IIB superstring theory on a plane-wave background and a particular large R-charge sector (‘BMN sector’) of four dimensional N = 4 super YangMills gauge theory is a


Transverse Fivebranes in Matrix Theory
M-theory on the maximally supersymmetric plane wave background of eleven-dimensional supergravity admits spherical BPS transverse M5-branes with zero light-cone energy. We give direct evidence that

We describe in detail the solution of type IIB superstring theory in the maximally supersymmetric plane-wave background with constant null Ramond-Ramond 5-form field strength. The corresponding

We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,
Spectrum of eleven-dimensional supergravity on a pp -wave background
We calculate the spectrum of the linearized supergravity around the maximally supersymmetric pp-wave background in eleven dimensions. The resulting spectrum agrees with that of zero-mode Hamiltonian
Matrix perturbation theory for M-theory on a PP-wave
In this paper, we study the matrix model proposed by Berenstein, Maldacena, and Nastase to describe M-theory on the maximally supersymmetric pp-wave. We show that the model may be derived directly as
Type IIA supergravity excitations in a plane-wave background
We study the low-lying excitations of Type IIA superstring theory in a plane wave background with 24 supersymmetries. In the light-cone gauge, the superstring action has ${\cal N}=(4,4)$
The String dual of a confining four-dimensional gauge theory
We study N=1 gauge theories obtained by adding finite mass terms to N=4 Yang-Mills theory. The Maldacena dual is nonsingular: in each of the many vacua, there is an extended brane source, arising
Multiple Dp-branes in Weak Background Fields
We find the terms in the nonabelian world-volume action of a system of many Dp-branes which describe the leading coupling to all type II supergravity background fields. These results are found by
