Title: Two and a half Perspectives on Semiclassical Strings in AdS4 x

Abstract: The talk looks at the comparison of semiclassical corrections to
strings in AdS_4 x CP^3 with expectations from integrability. This is
done for giant magnons and for the near-flat-space limit. Both
calculations differ from the corresponding AdS_5 x S^5 ones in that
there are modes of two different masses, and in that they have stronger
divergences to deal with. (Based on 1106.0737, 1006.2174, and work in
