Description

We present the differential decay rates and the branching ratios of the μ → eννγ and μ → eeeνν decays in the SM at next-to-leading order. These two rare decay modes of the muon are among the source of background in the experiments searching for charge lepton flavour violating (CLFV) decays μ → eγ and μ → eee. Indeed, the SM decays are indistinguishable from the CLFV ones except for the energy carried away by neutrinos. I will discuss the importance of radiative corrections for CLFV searches.
