Idea

Exotic branes are non-perturbative branes in non-perturbative string theory, describing non-geometric backgrounds.

Figure grabbed from (BMO19). «A comparison of the objects covered by the geometric solutions (backed by orange hashing) and non-geometric solutions (backed by green hashing) out of all the branes down to codimension-22 and 0α20\leq\alpha\leq -2, as well as their M-theory lifts. Red lines denote T-duality, blue lines denote lifts/reductions and black lines denote S-dualities
