Description

We present AdS(5) solutions of type IIA supergravity, holographically dual to compactifications of six-dimensional (1,0) superconformal field theories on Riemann surfaces with punctures. The solutions have O8-plane, D4, D6 and D8-brane sources. The D4-branes are smeared over a Riemann surface, and are interpreted as a large number of punctures.
