The Branes of String Theory

In this talk I will discuss how much information about branes can be obtained by using the supergravity approximation of string theory. In particular, I will show that supergravity by itself is not enough to relate the branes in different dimensions. Some further structure is needed, either in the form of new objects or a new geometry.
