Abstract
Maximal supergravity solutions are revisited and classified, with particular emphasis on objects of co-dimension at most two. This class of solutions includes branes whose tension scales with g_s^{-\sigma} for \sigma>2. We present a group theory derivation of the counting of these objects based on the corresponding tensor hierarchies derived from E11 and discrete T- and U-duality transformations. This provides a rationale for the wrapping rules that were recently discussed for \sigma<4 in the literature and extends them. Explicit supergravity solutions that give rise to co-dimension two branes are constructed and analysed.
