The Gravity Dual of Supersymmetric Gauge Theories on a Squashed Five-Sphere

We construct the gravity duals of large N supersymmetric gauge theories on a squashed five-sphere. They are constructed in Euclidean Romans F(4) gauged supergravity in six-dimensions. We find a one- as well as a two-parameter family of solutions and evaluate the renormalised on-shell and fundamental string action for these solutions to find precise agreement with gauge theory.
