In this note we study spin chain operators in the = 6 Chern-Simons-matter theory recently proposed by Aharony, Bergman, Jafferis and Maldacena to be dual to type IIA string theory in AdS 4 × 3. We study the two-loop dilatation operator in the gauge theory, and compare to the Penrose limit on the string theory side.
