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…
