1.Introduction In the minimal SM (without right handed neutrino), lepton flavor number is conserved. Observation of neutrino oscillation tells that lepton number is violated. No other places LFV process has been observed, there are, however, stringent constraints on such processes, the famous ones are m -> e g and e -> e e anti-e. Theoretical models explaining neutrino masses and oscillation usually have LFV interactions. It is important to study LFV processes to understand the laws of Nature. mscatters off a nuclei and changes into an e is a LFV process, m– e conversion. I will show that this processes can provide important information.
2. m – e Conversion in Fourth Generation Model l m e = V m 4 V e4, V ij quark mixing matrix element with 4 th generation
x 1,2,3 = (light neutrino mass)/m W ^2, very small, in SM3, m -> e g, m -> e e anti-e and m – e conversion rates very small!
Direct search for the 4 th generation: M 4 > 335 GeV, Tevatron; M t’ > 270 GeV, M b’ > 290 GeV at 95%c.l.( ATLAS), (newer number also larger than 450 GeV) M t’ > 450 GeV, M b’ > 495 GeV at 95% c.l. (CMS) Electroweak precision data: Mass splitting of up and down heavy quark: 60 GeV of so, OK. PMNS matrix 4x4: V i4 < a few x 0.01, OK
m – e conversion gives the best bounds! Z-penguin Dominance Current experimental bounds
5. Conclusions m – e conversion can be used to probe LFV interactions If a model with Z-penguin contribution, the current experimental bound on m – e conversion already provides better constraints than those from m -> e g. With Z-penguin contributions, the future experimental sensitivity on m – e conversion can provide better constraints than those from m -> e g.
