We discuss the relation between M theory and type II string theories. We show that, assuming "natural" interactions between membranes and fivebranes in M theory, the known interactions between strings and D-branes in type II string theories arise in appropriate limits. Our discussion of the interactions is purely at the classical level. We remark on issues associated with the M theory approach to enhanced gauge symmetries, which deserve further investigation.doi:10.1016/0550-3213(96)00292-1 fatcat:tq2h6seb2jg5nm7agfxwgpd3g4
