Search for lepton-flavour-violating decays of the Higgs and Z bosons with the ATLAS detector Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Direct searches for lepton flavour violation in decays of the Higgs and Z bosons with the ATLAS detector at the LHC are presented. The following three decays are considered: [Formula: see text], [Formula: see text], and [Formula: see text]. The searches are based on the data sample of proton-proton collisions collected by the ATLAS detector corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 [Formula: see text] at a centre-of-mass energy of [Formula: see text] TeV. No significant excess is observed, and upper limits on the lepton-flavour-violating branching ratios are set at the 95[Formula: see text] confidence level: Br[Formula: see text], Br[Formula: see text], and Br[Formula: see text].
