Title: Charged-lepton mixing and lepton flavor violation

We present a model for calculating charged-lepton mixing matrices. These matrices are an essential ingredient for predicting lepton avor-violating rates in the lepton number nonuniversal models recently proposed to explain anomalies in B-meson decays. The model is based on work on \constrained flavor breaking" by Appelquist, Bai and Piai relating the charged-lepton mass matrix, Mι, to those for the up and down-type quarks, Mud. We use our recent model of lepton nonuniversality to illustrate the magnitudes of avor-violating B-decay rates that might be expected. As a result, decays with μτ final states generally have the highest rates by far.
