Holographic RG flows from 7D gauged Supergravity

After reviewing properties and examples of holographic renormalization-group (RG) flows, I will present explicit solutions interpolating between AdS vacua of 7-dimensional gauged Supergravity. These vacua are characterized by two nilpotent elements, and are naturally interpreted as type IIA AdS7 solutions. I will show how they allow to test the conjecture that the hierarchy of the RG flow among a class of 6D SCFTs is determined by a partial ordering of nilpotent elements of the gauge group G that defines the theory.
