Abstract

A search is presented for a high mass neutral particle that decays directly to the e^± μ^∓ final state. The data sample was recorded by the ATLAS detector in √s=7~TeV pp collisions at the LHC from March to June 2011 and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 1.07 fb^(−1). The data are found to be consistent with the Standard Model background. The high e^± μ^∓ mass region is used to set 95% confidence level upper limits on the production of two possible new physics processes: tau sneutrinos in an R-parity violating supersymmetric model and Z′-like vector bosons in a lepton flavor violating model.
