$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 2 supersymmetric Janus solutions and flows: From gauged supergravity to M theory
Abstract
In this study, we investigate a family of SU(3)×U(1)×U(1)invariant holographic flows and Janus solutions obtained from gauged $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 8 supergravity in four dimensions. We give complete details of how to use the uplift formulae to obtain the corresponding solutions in M theory. While the flow solutions appear to be singular from the fourdimensional perspective, we find that the elevendimensional solutions are much better behaved and give rise to interesting new classes of compactification geometries that are smooth, up to orbifolds, in the infrared limit. Our solutions involve new phases in which M2 branes polarize partially or even completely into M5 branes. We derive the elevendimensional supersymmetries and show that the elevendimensional equations of motion and BPS equations are indeed satisfied as a consequence of their fourdimensional counterparts. Apart from elucidating a whole new class of elevendimensional Janus and flow solutions, our work provides extensive and highly nontrivial tests of the recentlyderived uplift formulae.
