Abstract.

We extend the proposal of Berenstein, Maldacena and Nastase to the Type IIB superstring propagating on a pp-wave over the R4/Zk orbifold. We show that first-quantized free string theory is described correctly by the large-N, fixed gauge coupling limit of \({\cal N}=2\) [U(N)] k quiver gauge theory. We propose a precise map between gauge theory operators and string states for both untwisted and twisted sectors. We also compute leading-order perturbative correction to the anomalous dimensions of these operators. The result is in agreement with the value deduced from the string energy spectrum, thus substantiating our proposed operator-state map.
