lepton flavor violation
Lepton flavor violation is the principle, in the Standard Model, that leptons do not change flavor. For example, a muon would never turn into an electron. If this were observed, it would be a signal for new physics. Evidence for neutrino oscillations already indicate that lepton flavor violation may occur.
