Description
We construct exact 2d CFTs, corresponding to closed string tachyon and metric profiles invariant under shifts in a null coordinate, which can be constructed from any 2d renormalization group flow. These solutions satisfy first order equations of motion in the conjugate null coordinate. The direction along which the tachyon varies is identified precisely with the worldsheet scale, and the tachyon equations of motion are the RG flow equations.
