Abstract: Using the attractor mechanism for extremal solutions in N = 2 $$ \mathcal{N}=2 $$ gauged supergravity, we construct a c -function that interpolates between the central charges of theories at ultraviolet and infrared conformal fixed points corresponding to anti-de Sitter geometries. The c -function we obtain is couched purely in terms of bulk quantities and connects two different dimensional CFTs at the stable conformal fixed points under the RG flow.
