A construction of Killing spinors on Sn Academic Article uri icon


  • We derive simple general expressions for the explicit Killing spinors on the n-sphere, for arbitrary n. Using these results we also construct the Killing spinors on various AdS×Sphere supergravity backgrounds, including AdS5×S5, AdS4 ×S7, and AdS7×S4. In addition, we extend previous results to obtain the Killing spinors on the hyperbolic spaces Hn. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
