AB <p>Supergravity theory is any supersymmetric theory with a local supersymmetry parameter. This thesis undertakes the study of type IIA supergravity, a supergravity theory in ten dimensions associated with type IIA string theory. In this framework we endeavour to classify all the classical geometries with minimal supersymmetry, where it should be noted that the constraints from minimal supersymmetry also apply to any solutions with enhanced supersymmetry.</p>

Such supergravity backgrounds locally admit one of four types of Killing spinors, with different isotropy groups. The Killing spinor equations have been solved for all four types, identifying the geometry of spacetime and examining the conditions on the fluxes.</p>
