Abstract

In this work, we investigate the possibility of probing a class of neutrino mass models at the LHC proton-proton collisions with 8 and 14 TeV energies. The existence of lepton flavor violating interactions for a singlet charged scalar, S±, that couples to the leptons could induce many processes such as pp→ α± β +E. Using the processes with α β=ee, eμ, μμ, we found that an inclusive cut on the MT2 event variable is vital in our analysis and leads to an effective suppression of the large Standard Model background. Our results show possible detectability of the charged scalars effect, especially at the s=14 TeV.
