Title: On the geometry of supersymmetric AdS solutions [PDF]
Abstract: The seven and nine dimensional geometries from certain classes of AdS3 and AdS2 solutions of D=10 IIB and D=11 supergravity have many similarities with Sasaki-Einstein geometry. They can be written locally as a U(1) fibration over Kahler space satisfying a higher order differential equation involving the Ricci tensor. We review the derivation of this construction, discuss nontrivial solutions, and how one can generalize such geometries to higher spatial dimensional spaces with Killing spinors.
