We investigate the AdS/CFT correspondence for higher-derivative gravity systems and develop a formalism in which the generating functional of the boundary field theory is given as a functional that depends only on the boundary values of bulk fields. We also derive a Hamilton-Jacobi-like equation that uniquely determines the generating functional, and give an algorithm calculating the Weyl anomaly. Using the expected duality between a higher-derivative gravity system and N = 2 superconformal field theory in four dimensions, we demonstrate that the resulting Weyl anomaly is consistent with the field theoretic anomaly.
