Original Paper


In this paper, we consider a complete noncompact n-submanifold M with parallel mean curvature vector h in an Euclidean space. If M has finite total curvature, we prove that M must be minimal, so that M is an affine n-plane if it is strongly stable. This is a generalization of the result on strongly stable complete hypersurfaces with constant mean curvature in \(\mathbb{R}^{n+1}.\)
