A search is presented for a high mass neutral particle that decays directly to the e ± μ ∓ final state. The data sample was recorded by the ATLAS detector in s√=7~TeV pp collisions at the LHC from March to June 2011 and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 1.07 fb−1. The data are found to be consistent with the Standard Model background. The high e ± μ ∓ mass region is used to set 95% confidence level upper limits on the production of two possible new physics processes: tau sneutrinos in an R-parity violating supersymmetric model and Z′-like vector bosons in a lepton flavor violating model.
