### Abstract

We prove in two different ways that brane dynamics gives rise to all H-monopoles predicted by S-duality of N = 4, 4-dimensional superstring compactifications. One method uses heterotic-type II duality and the self-dual 3-brane dynamics, the other uses the 5-brane description of small instantons in SO(32) superstrings.
