"Search for Lepton Flavor Violating decay Bs (Ks μ ± e )"

Emmanuel Munyangabe , University of Virginia
[Host: Craig Dukes]
Standard Model theory does not allow Lepton Flavor Violating (LFV) decays, however other extensions like SUSY, Pati-Salam Lepto-Quark (LQ) and Extra-Dimension(ED) models allow the LFV decays. In these models, the assumption of a local gauge symmetry between quarks and leptons at the lepton-flavor violation tree-level couplings lead to the prediction of a new force of nature which mediates transitions between quarks and leptons, hence LFV searches are important tool to search for New Physics beyond SM. I will discuss about the progress I have made in the search for the mentioned decay using data collected by D0 detector at Tevatron.
