N2 - We discuss the large N limit of the (2,0) field theory in six dimensions. We do this by assuming the validity of Maldacena's conjecture of the correspondence between large N gauge theories and supergravity backgrounds, here AdS7 × S4. We review the spectrum of the supergravity theory and compute the spectrum of primary operators of the conformal algebra of arbitrary spin.
