Abstract

We predict the branching ratios of the lepton flavor violating radion decays r --> e(+/-)mu(+/-), r --> e(+/-)tau(+/-) and r --> mu(+/-)tau(+/-) in the two Higgs doublet model, in the framework of the Randall-Sundrum scenario. We observe that their branching ratios are at most of the order of 10(-8), for small values of radion mass and they decrease with increasing values of mr. Among these processes, the r --> tau(+/-)mu(+/-) decay would be the most suitable one to measure its branching ratio.
