Abstract

We introduce a SU(N) regularized matrix model of the noncommutative-formulation of the D = 11 supermembrane compactified on a torus with non-trivial winding. In this model we show that the sector characterized by the winding number n ≠ 0 has no local string-like spikes, and the bosonic sector of the theory has discrete spectrum. We also discuss the spectrum for the complete supersymmetric model.
