Abstract

We show that general N = 2 supersymmetric AdS(4) solutions of M-theory with non-zero M2-brane charge admit a canonical contact structure. The free energy of the dual superconforrnal field theory on S-3 and the scaling dimensions of operators dual to supersyrnmetric wrapped M5-branes are expressed via AdS/CFT in terms of contact volumes. In particular, this leads to topological and localization formulae for the coefficient Of N-3/2 in the free energy of such solutions.
