A bstractWe describe a one-parameter family of new holographic RG flows that start from AdS4 × S7 and go to AdS5^×ℬ6$$ \widehat{Ad{S}_5}\times \mathrm{\mathcal{B}}6 $$, where ℬ6$$ \mathrm{\mathcal{B}}6 $$ is conformal to a Kähler manifold and AdS5^$$ \widehat{Ad{S}_5} $$ is Poincaré AdS5 with one spatial direction compactified and fibered over ℬ6$$ \mathrm{\mathcal{B}}6 $$. The new solutions “flow up dimensions,” going from the (2 + 1)-dimensional conformal field theory on M2 branes in the UV…
