 Abstract: We study the quantum-mechanical properties of a supermembrane and examine the nature of its ground state. A supersymmetric gauge theory of area-preserving transformations provides a convenient framework for this study. The supermembrane can be viewed as a limiting case of a class of models in supersymmetric quantum mechanics. Its mass does not depend on the zero modes and vanishes only if the wave function is a singlet under supersymmetry transformations of the nonzero modes. We exhibit the complexity of the supermembrane ground state and examine various truncations of these models. None of these truncations has massless states.
