Although the Lepton Flavor Violating (LFV) decay μ+e+ γ is forbidden in the Standard Model (SM), it can take place within various theories beyond the SM. If the branching ratio of this decay saturates the present bound on it [i.e., Br(μ+e+γ) ∼ 10−11] the forthcoming experiments can measure the branching ratio with high precision and consequently yield information on the sources of LFV. In this letter, we show that for polarized μ+, by studying the angular distribution of the transversely polarized positron and linearly polarized photon we can derive information on the CP-violating sources beyond those in the SM. We also study the decay μ+e+1 e e+2 where e+1 is defined to be the more energetic positron. We show that for transversely polarized e1+, we can also derive information on the phases of the underlying theory by studying the angular distribution of the final particles.
