We present solutions describing supersymmetric configurations of 2 or 3 orthogonally intersecting 2-branes and 5-branes of D = 11 supergravity. The configurations which preserve 1/4 or 1/8 of maximal supersymmetry are 2⊥2, 5⊥5, 2⊥5, 2⊥2⊥2, 5⊥5⊥5, 2⊥2⊥5 and 2⊥5⊥5 (2⊥2 stands for orthogonal intersection of two 2-branes over a point, etc.; p-branes of the same type intersect over (p-2)-branes). There exists a simple rule which governs the construction of composite supersymmetric p-brane solutions… CONTINUE READING
