Abstract We study the five-dimensional supergravity dual of the a-maximization under AdS5/CFT4 duality. We firstly show that the a-maximization is mapped to the attractor equation in five-dimensional gauged supergravity, and that the trial a-function is the inverse cube of the superpotential of the five-dimensional theory. There is also a version of a-maximization in which one extremizes over Lagrange multipliers enforcing the anomaly-free condition of the R-symmetry. We identify the supergravity dual of this procedure, and show how the Lagrange multipliers appearing in the supergravity description naturally correspond to the gauge coupling of the superconformal field theory.
