A new correspondence between type IIA string theory on AdS4×CP3 and an N=6 Super Chern-Simons-matter theory was proposed by Aharony, Bergman, Jafferis and Maldacena (ABJM) in 2008. We construct the D4-brane giant graviton, extended and moving in the complex projective space, which is dual to a subdeterminant operator in ABJM theory. This dynamically stable configuration factorizes at maximum size into two topologically stable D4-branes (each wrapped on a different CP2 cycle) dual to ABJM dibaryons. We also mention our more recent results obtained from an analysis of small fluctuations around this CP3 giant graviton.
