We analyze the AdS_3 x M_7 type supersymmetric solutions, including non-trivial fluxes, of the Killing spinor equations in the heterotic supergravity. We classify these solutions by their G-structures and intrinsic torsions, for the cases that the number of seven-dimensional Killing spinors N are equal to 1,2,3 and 4. We find that the solutions cannot have non-trivial warp factor and the seven dimensional manifold M_7 is charactrized by G_2(SU(3))-structures for N=1 (2) case and SU(2)-structure...

We investigate Type II orientifolds on non-factorizable torus with and without its oribifolding. We explicitly calculate the Ramond-Ramond tadpole from string one-loop amplitudes, and confirm that the consistent number of orientifold planes is directly derived from the Lefschetz fixed point theorem. We furthermore classify orientifolds on non-factorizable Z_N x Z_M orbifolds, and construct new supersymmetric Type IIA orientifold models on them.
