Constraining A_{4} leptonic flavour model parameters at colliders and beyond
Abstract
The observed pattern of mixing in the neutrino sector may be explained by the presence of a nonAbelian, discrete flavour symmetry broken into residual subgroups at low energies. Many flavour models require the presence of Standard Model singlet scalars which can promptly decay to charged leptons in a flavourviolating manner. We constrain the model parameters of a generic $$A_4$$ leptonic flavour model using a synergy of experimental data including limits from charged lepton flavour conversion, an 8 TeV collider analysis and constraints from the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. The most powerful constraints derive from the MEG collaborations' limit on Br$$\left(\mu\to e\gamma\right)$$ and the reinterpretation of an 8 TeV ATLAS search for anomalous productions of multileptonic final states. We quantify the exclusionary power of each of these experiments and identify regions where the constraints from collider and MEG experimental data are complementary.
