We investigate a potential of discovering lepton flavor violation (LFV) at the Large Hadron Collider. A sizeable LFV in low energy supersymmetry can be induced by massive right-handed neutrinos, which can explain neutrino oscillations via the seesaw mechanism. We investigate a scenario where the distribution of an invariant mass of two hadronically decaying taus (tau(h)tau(h)) from (chi) over bar (0)(2) decays is the same in events with or without LFV. We first develop a transfer function using this ditau mass distribution to model the shape of the non-LFV tau(h)mu invariant mass. We then show the feasibility of extracting the LFV tau(h)mu signal. The proposed technique can also be applied for a LFV tau(h)e search.
