Description

A search is performed for a heavy particle decaying into different flavour
dilepton pairs (emu, etau or mutau), using 36.5 fb^{-1} of proton--proton
collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of13 TeV collected in 2015 and
2016 by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. No excess over the
Standard Model prediction is observed. Limits at the 95% credibility level
are set on the mass of a Z' boson with lepton-flavour-violating
couplings and on the mass of a supersymmetric tau sneutrino with
R-parity-violating couplings at 2.3, 2.2 and 1.9 TeV, for emu, etau and
mutau final states, respectively. The results are also interpreted as
limits on the threshold mass for quantum black hole production.
