Supersymmetric solutions of gauged five-dimensional supergravity with general matter couplings

We perform the characterization program for the supersymmetric configurations and solutions of the supergravity theory coupled to an arbitrary number of vectors, tensors and hypermultiplets and with

Solutions of minimal four-dimensional de Sitter supergravity

Pseudo-supersymmetric solutions of minimal N = 2, D = 4 de Sitter supergravity are classified using spinorial geometry techniques. We find three classes of solutions. The first class of solution

Invariant Killing spinors in 11D and type II supergravities

We present all isotropy groups and associated Σ groups, up to discrete identifications of the component connected to the identity, of spinors of 11-dimensional and type II supergravities. The Σ

The supersymmetric solutions and extensions of ungauged matter-coupled N = 1, d = 4 supergravity

We find the most general supersymmetric solutions of ungauged N = 1, d = 4 supergravity coupled to an arbitrary number of vector and chiral supermultiplets, which turn out to be essentially pp-waves


We review some aspects of the spinorial geometry approach to the classification of supersymmetric solutions of supergravity theories. In particular, we explain how spinorial geometry can be used to

Enhanced horizons

Half-supersymmetric geometries of N  =  2 five-dimensional gauged supergravity have recently been fully classified using spinorial geometry techniques. We use this classification to determine all

IIB supergravity on manifolds with SU(4) structure and generalized geometry

A bstractWe consider $ \mathcal{N}=\left( {2,0} \right) $ backgrounds of IIB supergravity on eight-manifolds $ {{\mathcal{M}}_8} $ with strict SU(4) structure. We give the explicit solution to the

Vanishing preons in the fifth dimension

It is shown that there are no solutions preserving exactly 3/4 of the supersymmetry in type IIB supergravity.

Isometries of half supersymmetric time-like solutions in five dimensions

This paper considers solutions for which at least one of the Killing spinors generates a time-like Killing vector, and obtains coordinate transformations which considerably simplify the solutions.

Classification of supersymmetric backgrounds of string theory

We review the recent progress made towards the classification of supersymmetric solutions in ten and eleven dimensions with emphasis on those of IIB supergravity. In particular, the spinorial



The spinorial geometry of supersymmetric heterotic string backgrounds

We determine the geometry of supersymmetric heterotic string backgrounds for which all parallel spinors with respect to the connection with torsion H, the NS⊗NS three-form field strength, are

Supergravity vacua and lorentzian Lie groups

We classify maximally supersymmetric backgrounds (vacua) of chiral (1,0) and (2,0) supergravities in six dimensions and, by reduction, also those of the minimal N=2 supergravity in five dimensions.

The G2 spinorial geometry of supersymmetric IIB backgrounds

We solve the Killing spinor equations of supersymmetric IIB backgrounds which admit one supersymmetry and the Killing spinor has stability subgroup G2 in Spin(9, 1) × U(1). We find that such

The spinorial geometry of supersymmetric backgrounds

We propose a new method to solve the Killing spinor equations of 11-dimensional supergravity based on a description of spinors in terms of forms and on the Spin(1, 10) gauge symmetry of the

A new maximally supersymmetric background of IIB superstring theory

We present a maximally supersymmetric IIB string background. The geometry is that of a conformally flat lorentzian symmetric space G/K with solvable G, with a homogeneous five-form flux. We give the

The spinorial geometry of supersymmetric IIB backgrounds

We investigate the Killing spinor equations of IIB supergravity for one Killing spinor. We show that there are three types of orbits of Spin(9, 1) in the space of Weyl spinors which give rise to

Breaking the M-waves

We present a systematic attempt at classification of supersymmetric M-theory vacua with zero flux; that is, eleven-dimensional lorentzian manifolds with vanishing Ricci curvature and admitting

Penrose limits, PP waves and deformed M2 branes

Motivated by the recent discussions of the Penrose limit of AdS_5\times S^5, we examine a more general class of supersymmetric pp-wave solutions of the type IIB theory, with a larger number of
