Abstract

The Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM)
is a natural framework where several
signals of lepton flavour violation (LFV) could be significant,
We consider in detail several
$mu$$ au$ LFV processes, namely $ au o mu X$
($X=gamma, e^+ e^, mu^+ mu^,
ho, pi, eta, eta'$),
$Z o mu au$ and Higgs boson decays into $mu au$.
First we present a model independent operator analysis relevant
to such decays. Then we focus on the MSSM case, allowing slepton mass
matrices to have large $mu$$ au$ entries.
We show how the rates and the mutual correlations of
those LFV decays change in different regions of the
MSSM parameter space.
Values of the LFV branching ratios in the experimentally
interesting range $10^{9}10^{7}$ can be achieved.
For at least two MSSM Higgs bosons, the
branching ratio of the LFV decay into $mu au$ can
reach values of order $10^{4}$.
