A direct search for lepton flavour violation in decays of the Higgs boson with the ATLAS detector at the LHC is presented. The analysis is performed in the H→ℓτ channel, where the leading lepton can be either an electron or a muon and where the tau decays hadronically. The search is based on the data sample of proton–proton collisions collected by the ATLAS detector corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 fb−1 at a centre-of-mass energy of √s=13TeV.
