Nature of problem:
In the era of the Large Hadron Collider, the ability to automate rapid model discrimination is needed. Dedicated experimental searches for charged lepton flavor violation (LFV) are currently operational with next generation experiments on the horizon. Generically, extensions of the standard model, including supersymmetric models, will induce LFV, such as rare muon (tau) decay. No single tool should bear the burden of providing all conceivable calculations within a certain model. Hence, it is warranted that numerical tools to interoperate together and be developed as independent components, each providing defined tasks.

Solution method:
The Supersymmetry Les Houches Accord (SLHA) provides a standardized protocol for the interoperation of tools that provide the calculation of mass spectra in supersymmetric models, the calculation of observables, and the calculation of event generation. SuperLFV is an SLHA compliant observables calculator, with a dedicated focus on lepton flavor violation.
