Phenomenology of lepton-flavor violation

by Alexey Petrov

OC218 (IPPP)




Observation of lepton flavor violation (LFV) in the current round of experiments would provide an unambiguous sign of New Physics. All models of LFV New Physics can be encoded in a low energy effective Lagrangian that contains over a dozen distinct operator structures. I will discuss how to constrain Wilson coefficients of those operators from the data obtained in various LFV leptonic and radiative leptonic transitions of B/D/K mesons, LFV decays of various quarkonia, as well as directly from the LHC data.
