Introduction LFV is a clear signal for physics beyond the SM. Neutrino oscillation may indicate the possibility of LFV in the charged lepton sector. In new physics models, LFV naturally appears.

In this talk, we consider tau-associated LFV In this talk, we consider tau-associated LFV The discovery of large mixing between ν μ andν τ may be related to large LFV in the μ-τsector In SUSY models, the Higgs mediated LFV can contribute to the tau-associated process with the enhancement of the tau lepton mass.
Constraints on theτ-μeffective couplings from current data Scalar coupling τ→μππ Λ ～ 2.6 TeV Pseudo-scalar coupling τ→μη ～ 12 TeV Vector τ→μφ ～ 14 TeV Pseudo-vector τ→μπ ～ 11 TeV Pseudo-vector τ→μπ ～ 11 TeV Black, Han, He, Sher, 2002

Decoupling property Gauge mediation (Dim=5) : decouple for large M SUSY decouple for large M SUSY Higgs mediation (Dim=4) Does not decouple in the large M SUSY limit
Consider that M SUSY is as large as O(1) TeV with a fixed value of |μ|/M SUSY A sufficiently large Higgs mediated LFV coupling can be realized in a SUSY model, with the suppressed gauge mediated LFV. Babu,Kolda; Babu,Kolda; Brignole, Rossi Brignole, Rossi For mA=150GeV and tanβ=60,
Alternative process for the search of the Higgs LFV coupling Future τ decay search may improve the upper limit by one or two orders of magnitude. Do we have another way to measure the Higgs LFV coupling? At future neutrino factories (muon colliders), Energy 50 GeV (100-500GeV) Energy 50 GeV (100-500GeV) 10^20 muons can be available. 10^20 muons can be available. We here consider the DIS process μ Ｎ →τ Ｘ the DIS process μ Ｎ →τ Ｘ from such intense muon beam. from such intense muon beam.

Enhancement of the SUSY cross section Each sub-process μq→τq μq→τq is proportional to the quark masses because of the Yukawa coupling. is proportional to the quark masses because of the Yukawa coupling. For the energy > 50 GeV, the hadronic cross section is enhanced due to is enhanced due to the b-quark sub-process the b-quark sub-process Eμ ＝ 50 GeV 10^(-5)fb Eμ ＝ 50 GeV 10^(-5)fb 100 GeV 10^(-4)fb 100 GeV 10^(-4)fb 300 GeV 10^(-3)fb 300 GeV 10^(-3)fb Importance of higher energy beam than 50 GeV CTEQ6L
Energy distribution for each angle From the μ L beam, τ R is emitted to the backward direction due to (1 ー cosθ CM ) nature in the CM frame. In Lab-frame, tau is emitted forward direction but with relatively large angle with a P T. Eμ ＝ 50 GeV Eμ ＝ 100 GeV Eμ ＝ 500 GeV 2

Backgrounds Hadrons from the target (N) should be softer, and more unimportant for higher energies of the initial muon beam. Hard muons from μN→μX may be a fake signal via mis-ID of μas π. Rate of mis-ID Rate of mis-ID Emitted to forwad direction without large P T due to the Rutherford scattering 1/sin^4(θc M /2) ⇒ P T cuts 1/sin^4(θc M /2) ⇒ P T cuts Other factors to reduce the fake Realistic Monte Carlo simulation is necessary to see the feasibility
Summary We discussed the possibility of measuring LFV via μN→τX by the intense high energy beam. Non-observation of the signal can improve the present limit on the scalar LFV coupling by ～ 10^6. In the SUSY model (scalar coupling=p-scalar coupling), 100-10000 tau leptons can be produced for Eμ=50-500 GeV. For Eμ > 50 GeV, the cross section is enhanced due to the b-quark sub-process. The signal is hard hadrons from τ→πν 、 ρν, a 1 ν,...., which go along the τdirection. a 1 ν,...., which go along the τdirection. Main background: mis-ID of μ from μN→μX. Different distribution: P T cut may be effective. Realistic background simulation should be done.
Note added In the similar way, we can consider search for e-τconversion via the DIS process of e N →τ X. At a linear collider (E=500GeV L=10^34/cm^2/s) 10^22 electrons of E=250GeV available. The constraint on the (eτqq) coupling can be improved via e N →τ X by 10^8 as compared to that by τ→eππ.
