© 2015, The Author(s).Abstract: It has been shown that membranes and fivebranes are wave-like or monopole-like solutions in some higher dimensional theory. Here the picture is completed by combining the wave and monopole solutions into a single solution of Exceptional Field Theory. This solution solves the twisted self-duality constraint. The 1/2 BPS brane spectrum, consisting of fundamental, solitonic and Dirichlet branes and their bound states, in ten- and eleven-dimensional supergravity may all be extracted from this single solution of Exceptional Field Theory. The solution’s properties such as its asymptotic behavior at the core and at infinity are investigated.
