Title: The conformal Killing spinor initial data equations
We obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for an initial data set for the vacuum conformal Einstein field equations to give rise to a spacetime development in possession of a Killing spinor. The fact that the conformal Einstein field equations are used in our derivation allows for the possibility of the initial hypersurface intersecting non-trivially with (or even being a subset of) null infinity. For conciseness, these conditions are derived assuming that the initial hypersurface is spacelike. Hence, in particular, these conformal Killing spinor initial data equations encode necessary and sufficient conditions
for the existence of a Killing spinor in the development of asymptotic initial data on spacelike components of null infinity.
