Abstract :

Self-similar string solutions near the
point of singularity formation will be
derived, and shown to extend to point-
like singularities on M-branes.
A (unique) Spin(9)xSU(2) singlet state,
involving the fermionic degrees of freedom
of the corresponding supersymmetric membrane
matrix model will then be constructed,
to which any non-singular zero energy
wavefunction of SU(2) matrix theory
has to, at the origin, reduce to.
