Title: 
On the geometry of supersymmetric AdS solutions

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 SasakiEinstein 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.
