Title: An Overture to Quantum Superstring in AdS_5 x S^5

Abstract: As a step towards understanding the quantum closed string in AdS_5 x S^5,
one of the crucial unsolved problems in AdS/CFT correspondence, we
study the quantum superparticle in such a curved background.
We will describe how to quantize and obtain the spectrum of the system
exactly, together with the explicit wavefunctions, by making use of the
powerful superconformal symmetry of the system. The spectrum precisely
matches that of supergravity, including all the Kaluza-Klein
