AdS_{5} compactifications with punctures in massive IIA supergravity
Abstract
We find AdS_{5} solutions holographically dual to compactifications of six dimensional N = (1, 0) supersymmetric field theories on Riemann surfaces with punctures. We simplify a previous analysis of supersymmetric AdS_{5} IIA solutions, and with a suitable Ansatz we find explicit solutions organized in three classes, where an O8D8 stack, D6and D4branes are simultaneously present, localized and partially localized. The D4branes are smeared over the Riemann surface and this is interpreted as the presence of a uniform distribution of punctures. For the first class we identify the corresponding sixdimensional theory as an Estring theory coupled to a quiver gauge theory. The second class of solutions lacks D6branes and its central charge scales as n ^{5/2}, suggesting a fivedimensional origin for the dual field theory. The last class has elements of the previous two.
