Lepton flavor violation at the Large Hadron Collider Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We investigate a potential of discovering lepton flavor violation (LFV) at the Large Hadron Collider. A sizeable LFV in low energy supersymmetry can be induced by massive right-handed neutrinos, which can explain neutrino oscillations via the seesaw mechanism. We investigate a scenario where the distribution of an invariant mass of two hadronically decaying taus (τ hτ h) from χ∼20 decays is the same in events with or without LFV. We first develop a transfer function using this ditau mass distribution to model the shape of the non-LFV τ hμ invariant mass. We then show the feasibility of extracting the LFV τ hμ signal. The proposed technique can also be applied for a LFV τ he search. © 2012 American Physical Society.
