Flavor Violation at the LHC Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2017 Elsevier B.V. In this talk, we discuss a way of establishing lepton flavor violation (LFV) at the Large Hadron Collider(LHC). The existence of massive right-handed neutrinos can explain neutrino oscillations via the seesaw mechanism and can induce a sizeable LFV in low energy supersymmetry. We use χ˜20−χ˜10−τ˜1 system to study the invariant masses of two hadronically decaying taus (τhτh) and one hadronically decaying tau plus a muon (τhμ) from χ˜20 in scenarios with LFV. The τhμ invariant mass (where μ emerges from the τ decay) can arise even withoul LFV. We use a transfer function utilizing the ditau mass distribution to extract the LFV τhμ signal. The proposed technique can also be applied for a LFV τhe search and any model.
