We find new asymptotically locally AdS4 Euclidean supersymmetric solutions of the STU model in four-dimensional gauged supergravity. These “black saddles” have an S1 × $$ {\Sigma}_{\mathfrak{g}} $$ boundary at asymptotic infinity and cap off smoothly in the interior. The solutions can be uplifted to eleven dimensions and are holographically dual to the topologically twisted ABJM theory on S1 × $$ {\Sigma}_{\mathfrak{g}} $$ . We show explicitly that the on-shell action of the black saddle…

Unreasonable Effectiveness of Higher Derivative Supergravity in AdS_{4} Holography.
A general formula is derived for the regularized on-shell action for any asymptotically locally AdS_{4} solution of the theory and how the higher-derivative corrections affect black hole thermodynamic quantities in a universal way is shown.
