In this paper, we generalize Colding-Minicozzi's recent results about codimension-1 self-shrinkers for the mean curvature flow to higher codimension. In particular, we prove that the sphere is the only complete embedded connected -stable self-shrinker in with , polynomial volume growth, flat normal bundle and bounded geometry. We also discuss some properties of symplectic self-shrinkers, proving that any complete symplectic self-shrinker in with polynomial volume growth and bounded second fundamental form is a plane. As a corollary, we show that there is no finite time Type I singularity for symplectic mean curvature flow, which has been proved by Chen-Li using different method. We also study Lagrangian self-shrinkers and prove that for Lagrangian mean curvature flow, the blow-up limit of the singularity may be not F-stable.
