We obtain the M5-M2-MW bound state solutions of 11-dimensional supergravity corresponding to the 1/2 supersymmetric vacua of the M5-brane equations with constant background fields. In the 'near-horizon' case the solution interpolates between the adS7 x S4 Kaluza-Klein vacuum and D = 11 Minkowski spacetime via a Domain Wall spacetime. We discuss implications for renormalization group flow of (2, 0) D = 6 field theories. (C) 2000 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
