Semiclassical folded string in AdS4 x CP3

We consider type IIA superstring theory on the background AdS4 x CP3 and the classical solution describing a folded string spinning in AdS4 with angular momentum in CP3. We quantize the classical solution by algebraic curve methods and determine the fi rst semiclassical correction to the energy. We analyze its properties in the special regimes associated with a short or long string providing various accurate analytical expansions.
