$\\\\tau$ decays with neutral kaons  

Microsoft Academic Search

The branching ratio of the tau lepton to a neutral K meson is measured from a sample of approximately 200,000 tau decays recorded by the OPAL detector at centre-of-mass energies near the Z0 resonance. The measurement is based on two samples which identify one-prong tau decays with KL and KS mesons. The combined branching ratios are measured to be B(tau-

Measurements of the {tau} decay modes are reviewed and compared with the predictions of the Standard Model. While the agreement is generally good, the status of the 1-prong puzzle'' remains controversial and a discrepancy between the measured leptonic branching fractions and the {tau} lifetime persists. Prospects for precision measurements at a Tau-Charm Factory are also reviewed. 20 refs., 2 tabs.

Decays of the heavy lepton, tau (1785)  

SciTech Connect

The structure of the weak hadronic current coupled to the tau is investigated via some of the hadronic decays of the tau. The vector current coupling is determined by measuring the tau ..-->.. rho ..nu../sub tau/ branching ratio. The axial-vector coupling is determined by measuring the tau ..-->.. ..pi.. ..nu../sub tau/ branching ratio. The Cabibbo structure of the hadronic current is established by observing the decay tau ..-->.. K*(890)..nu../sub tau/ and measuring its branching ratio. The branching ratios for the decays tau ..-->.. e anti ..nu../sub e/..nu../sub tau/ and tau ..-->.. ..mu.. anti ..nu../sub ..mu../..nu../sub tau/ are measured as a normalization for the hadronic decays and as a check on the validity of the measurements. The leptonic branching ratios agree well with previous experiments. From a kinematic fit to the pion energy spectrum in the decay tau ..-->.. ..pi.. ..nu../sub tau/, an upper limit (95% confidence level) of 245 MeV is placed on the tau neutrino mass. From a simultaneous fit of the center of mass energy dependence of the tau production cross section and the pion energy spectrum in the decay tau ..-->.. ..pi.. ..nu../sub tau/, the tau mass is determined to be 1.787 +- .010 GeV/c. All properties of the tau measured here are consistent with it being a sequential lepton coupled to the ordinary weak hadronic current.

Mirror-lepton mixing in tau decays

We explore the sensitivity of the semileptonic decays tau/sup -/..--> pi../sup -/..nu../sub tau/ and tau/sup -/..-->..K/sup -/..nu../sub tau/ to mirror-lepton mixing and find that the existing data on these decays yield upper limits chemically bondtheta/sub tau/chemically bond,chemically bondphi/sub tau/chemically bondless than or equal to34.8/sup 0/ (for theta/sub ..mu../,phi/sub ..mu../ = 0/sup 0/) on the mixing angles which are not far from the best present limits. The angular distribution of ..pi.. (K) for the decay of polarized tau, if measured, could distinguish between ultralight- and heavy-mirror-neutrino mixing models. In addition, the angular correlation of the decay products of tau/sup +/tau/sup -/ for the process e/sup +/e/sup -/..-->..tau/sup +/tau/sup -/ could be useful in discerning charged-mirror-lepton mixing.

Identification of hadronic tau decays in ATLAS  

SciTech Connect

Taus can be an important signature for Supersymmetry at the LHC. They can be produced copiously in the decays of supersymmetric particles. Measurement of their momentum and of the tau-tau invariant mass distribution, would provide detailed information regarding the masses of supersymmetric particles. It is demonstrated using full simulation that it will be possible for ATLAS to make a cut on the reconstructed tau invariant mass using information from the tracking and the electromagnetic calorimeter. The measured energy and momentum of tau's that pass this selection can then be used to infer information about the tau-tau invariant mass.

Decays of the tau lepton  

SciTech Connect

Previous measurements of the branching fractions of the tau lepton result in a discrepancy between the inclusive branching fraction and the sum of the exclusive branching fractions to final states containing one charged particle. The sum of the exclusive branching fractions is significantly smaller than the inclusive branching fraction. In this analysis, the branching fractions for all the major decay modes are measured simultaneously with the sum of the branching fractions constrained to be one. The branching fractions are measured using an unbiased sample of tau decays, with little background, selected from 207 pb/sup -1/ of data accumulated with the Mark II detector at the PEP e/sup +/e/sup -/ storage ring. The sample is selected using the decay products of one member of the ..gamma../sup +/..gamma../sup -/ pair produced in e/sup +/e/sup -/ annihilation to identify the event and then including the opposite member of the pair in the sample. The sample is divided into subgroups according to charged and neutral particle multiplicity, and charged particle identification. The branching fractions are simultaneously measured using an unfold technique and a maximum likelihood fit. The results of this analysis indicate that the discrepancy found in previous experiments is possibly due to two sources. First, the leptonic branching fractions measured in this analysis are about one standard deviation higher than the world average. The measured leptonic branching fractions correspond to a tau lifetime of (3.0 +- 0.2) x 10/sup -13/ s. Secondly, the total branching fraction to one charged hadron plus at least one neutral particle is measured to be (7 +- 3)% higher than the branching fraction expected from a combination of previous measurements and theoretical predictions. It is shown that decay modes involving the eta are not expected to contribute more than 3% to this excess.

Observation of the decays tau. -->. eta X, tau. -->. omega. X  

SciTech Connect

In a study of tau lepton decay using the High Resolution Spectrometer at the PEP storage ring, the inclusive production of the rho, ..omega.., and eta mesons has been observed. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 300 pb/sup -1/ and the storage ring was operated at ..sqrt..s = 29 GeV. The inclusive branching ratio for tau/sup +/ ..-->.. ..pi../sup +/eta X is (8 +- 4)%. This result resolves the current discrepancy between the one-prong topological branching ratio and the sum of the individual one-prong modes.

We present measurements of spectral moments extracted from the invariant mass distributions of the final states of hadronic tau decay products recorded in the CLEO detector. From a fit of theoretical predictions to the measurements of spectral moments and the total hadronic decay width of the tau, we determine the strong coupling constant and a set of non-perturbative QCD parameters.

Our results are based on an analysis of the {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup minus} invariant mass spectrum to find the narrow peak resulting from the decay sequence {tau} {yields} {eta}x and {eta} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup minus}{pi}{degree}. No clear peak is observed and a 90% confidence upper limit on the process {tau} {yields} {eta}x of 2.1% is found. For decays {tau} {yields} {eta}{eta}x the 90% confidence upper limit is 1.3%. Our best limit on {tau} {yields} {eta}{eta}x is obtained from tau decay to five charged particles with a 90% confidence level upper limit of 0.5%.

Measurement of the strange spectral function in hadronic tau decays  

Microsoft Academic Search

Tau lepton decays with open strangeness in the final state are measured with the OPAL detector at LEP to determine the strange hadronic spectral function of the tau lepton. The decays tau - -> (Kpi)-nu tau, (pi pi )-nu tau and (Kpi pi pi )-nutau with final states consisting of neutral and charged kaons and pions have been studied. The

Reconstruction and selection of Z{yields}{tau}{tau}{yields}{mu}+{tau}-jet+{nu}'s decays at the CMS experiment  

SciTech Connect

At the LHC, tau leptons are expected in final states of many important physics processes including Supersymmetry and the production of Higgs boson(s) and other exotic particles. An efficient and accurate {tau} reconstruction and identification are therefore an important part of the CMS physics programme. Z{sup 0}{yields}{tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} decays are often considered the ''standard candle'' of tau reconstruction as they validate tau lepton identification and provide a test bench for Higgs searches (for which they constitute the main irreducible background). We describe techniques for selecting and reconstructing the Z{sup 0}{yields}{tau}{sup {+-}}{tau}{sup {-+}}{yields}{mu}{sup {+-}}{nu}{sub {mu}}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}}({bar {nu}}{sub {mu}}{nu}{sub {tau}})+{tau}-jet{sup {-+}}{nu}{sub {tau}}({bar {nu}}{sub {tau}}) events that were developed for the measurement of the Z production cross-section by the CMS experiment using 200 pb{sup -1} of the LHC collision data at the center-of-mass energy {radical}(s) 10 TeV. We validate these techniques using simulated events and present a data-driven method for estimating background contributions to this measurement.

Search for the rare decay B0-->tau+tau- at BABAR.  

PubMed

We present the results of a search for the decay B0-->tau+tau- in a data sample of (232+/-3)x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays using the BABAR detector. Certain extensions of the standard model predict measurable levels of this otherwise rare decay. We reconstruct fully one neutral B meson and seek evidence for the signal decay in the rest of the event. We find no evidence for signal events and obtain Beta(B0->tau+tau-)<4.1x10(-3) at the 90% confidence level. PMID:16907230

Unraveling duality violations in hadronic tau decays  

SciTech Connect

There are some indications from recent determinations of the strong coupling constant alpha_s and the gluon condensate that the Operator Product Expansion may not be accurate enough to describe non-perturbative effects in hadronic tau decays. This breakdown of the Operator Product Expansion is usually referred to as being due to"Duality Violations." With the help of a physically motivated model, we investigate these duality violations. Based on this model, we argue how they may introduce a non-negligible systematic error in the current analysis, which employs finite-energy sum rules with pinched weights. In particular, this systematic effect might affect the precision determination of alpha_s from tau decays. With a view to a possible future application to real data, we present an alternative method for determining the OPE coefficients that might help estimating, and possibly even reducing, this systematic error.

Measurements of the tau polarisation in Z0 decays  

Microsoft Academic Search

A sample of Z0-->tau+tau- events observed in the DELPHI detector at LEP in 1991 and 1992 is analysed to measure the tau polarisation in the exclusive decay channelsevbar v,mu vbar v, pinu, rhonu and a1nu. The tau polarisation is also measured with an inclusive hadronic analysis which benefits from a higher efficiency and a better systematic precision than the use

Topological and hadronic decays of the tau  

SciTech Connect

A summary of recent measurements of the branching ratio of the tau lepton to one, three and five charged particles plus any number of neutral particles performed by the four LEP experiments is presented. Results of exclusive hadronic branching ratios performed by DELPHI, OPAL and ALEPH are summarized. Limits on missing decay modes'' have been set with the ALEPH data and this is compared to the limits on such modes that can set combining recent results from other experiments. The results quoted in this paper should be considered preliminary unless stated otherwise.

Search for the rare leptonic decay B--->tau-nutau.  

PubMed

We present a search for the decay B(-)--> tau(-)nu(tau) in a sample of 88.9 x 10(6) BB pairs recorded with the BABAR detector at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center B factory. One of the two B mesons from the Gamma(4S) is reconstructed in a hadronic or a semileptonic final state, and the decay products of the other B in the event are analyzed for consistency with a B(-) --> tau(-)nu(tau) decay. We find no evidence of a signal and set an upper limit on the branching fraction of B(B(-) --> tau(-) nu(tau)) < 4.2 x 10(-4) at the 90% confidence level. PMID:16090798

Using the complete data sample of 300 pb/sup -1/ from e/sup +/e/sup -/ collisions at 29 GeV, the HRS collaboration has searched for tau decay to 7 charged particles and any number of neutrals. No events were found. The corresponding upper limit to the branching ratio is B(tau ..-->.. 7..pi../sup + -/ + n..gamma.. + nu/sub tau/) < 3.8 x 10/sup -4/ at 90% confidence level. Using the final HRS data sample we also report updated branching ratios for tau ..-->.. 5..pi../sup + -/ + nu/sub tau/ and tau ..-->.. 5..pi../sup + -/ + ..pi../sup 0/ + nu/sub tau/.

Observation of tau-lepton decay to five charged particles  

SciTech Connect

The production of tau-lepton pairs in e/sup +/e/sup -/ collisions at 29 GeV has been used to study the inclusive tau decay into five charged particles. Ten events are observed in the high-resolution spectrometer giving a branching ratio of B(tau..-->..5..pi../sup + -/+n..gamma..+..nu../sub tau/) = (1.3 +- 0 .4) x 10/sup -3/. Five of the events contain photons which are consistent with coming from a single ..pi../sup 0/. With this interpretation we measure B(tau..-->..5..pi.. +- +..nu../sub tau/), B(tau..-->..5..pi../sup + -/+..pi../sup 0/+..nu../sub tau/) = (6.7 +- 3.0) x 10/sup -4/. The branching-ratio upper limit for the decay mode tau..-->..K/sup 0/+3..pi../sup + -/n..gamma..+..nu../sub tau/ is found, at 90% confidence level, to be 2.7 x 10/sup -3/.

CP Violation in Tau to K* Decays  

SciTech Connect

A sample of {tau}{sup {+-}} {yields} K*{sup {+-}} decays with K*{sup {+-}} {yields} K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup {+-}} and K{sub S}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}, using 123.4 fb{sup -1} of data collected by the BaBar detector at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, is used to search for a direct CP violation effect in the charged Higgs sector. No evidence of CP violation is found and the imaginary part of the charged Higgs coupling, {l_brace}Im{r_brace}({Lambda}), in the Multi-Higgs-Doublet-Model is found to be at -0.284 < {l_brace}Im{r_brace}({Lambda}) < 0.200 at 90% Confidence Level. In addition the installation of the kk2f Monte Carlo generator into the BaBar software framework is described.

Higgs mediated lepton flavor violating tau decays {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma} and {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}{gamma} in effective theories  

SciTech Connect

The size of the branching ratios for the {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma} and {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}{gamma} decays induced by a lepton flavor violating Higgs interaction H{tau}{mu} is studied in the framework of effective field theories. The best constraint on the H{tau}{mu} vertex, derived from the know measurement on the muon anomalous magnetic moment, is used to impose the upper bounds Br({tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma})<7.5x10{sup -10} and Br({tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}{gamma})<2.3x10{sup -12}, which are more stringent than current experimental limits on this class of transitions.

Search for the Decay B+-->K+ tau-/+ mu+/-.  

PubMed

We present a search for the lepton flavor violating decay B+-->K+ tau-/+ mu+/- using 383 x 10;{6} BB[over ] events collected by the BABAR experiment. The branching fraction for this decay can be substantially enhanced in new physics models. The kinematics of the tau from the signal B decay are inferred from the K+, mu, and other B in the event, which is fully reconstructed in one of a variety of hadronic decay modes, allowing the signal B candidate to be fully reconstructed. We observe no excess of events over the expected background and set a limit of B(B+-->K+ tau mu)<7.7 x 10(-5) at 90% confidence level, where the branching fraction is for the sum of the K+ tau- mu+ and K+ tau+mu- final states. We use this result to improve a model-independent bound on the energy scale of flavor-changing new physics. PMID:18233132

Lepton-flavor-violating tau decays at BABAR

We present the most recent searches for lepton-flavor-violating (LFV)tau decays in BABAR. We find no evidence of tau decaying to three charged leptons or to a charged lepton and a neutral meson (K{sub S}{sup 0},rho, phi, K*{sup 0}, K-bar*{sup 0}), and set upper limits on the corresponding branching fractions (BF) between 1.8 and 19x10{sup -8} at 90% confidence level (CL).

Meson dominance in the 'second class' {tau}{yields}{eta}{pi}{nu}{sub {tau}}decay

Motivated by recent estimates of the isospin-violating process {tau}{yields}{eta}{pi}{nu}{sub {tau}}, mostly relying on the {rho} and a{sub 0} dominance of the relevant form factors near threshold, we present an assessment for the branching ratio that accounts for additional, potential effects from the lowest radial excitations {rho}{sup '{identical_to}{rho}}(1450) and a{sub 0}{sup '{identical_to}}a{sub 0}(1450), respectively, also lying in the decay phase space.

Search for tau- ---> 4pi- 3pi+ (pi0) nu/tau Decays  

SciTech Connect

A search for the decay of the {tau} lepton to seven charged pions and at most one {pi}{sup 0} was performed using the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e{sup +}e{sup -} collider. The analysis uses data recorded on and near the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance between 1999 and 2003, a total of 124.3 fb{sup -1}. They observe 7 events with an expected background of 11.9 {+-} 2.2 events and calculate a preliminary upper limit of BR({tau}{sup -} {yields} 4{pi}{sup -} 3{pi}{sup +}({pi}{sup 0}){nu}{sub {tau}}) < 2.7 x 10{sup -7} at 90% CL. This is a significant improvement over the previous limit established by the CLEO Collaboration.

Lepton Flavour Violation in Tau Decays at BaBar  

SciTech Connect

Recent results from {tau} physics studies at BABAR are presented with an emphasis on Lepton Flavour Violation measurements. The results from the current generation of B-meson Factories are already beginning to constrain the parameter space of models that go beyond the Standard Model. By the end of their data-taking, the current generation of B-meson factories will have produced nearly 2 billion {tau} pair decays. The physics potential of this legacy has only just begun to be exploited.

Searches for lepton-flavor-violating decays of a tau lepton to a lighter mass lepton and a photon have been performed with the entire data set of (963+/-7)x10{6} tau decays collected by the BABAR detector near the Upsilon(4S), Upsilon(3S) and Upsilon(2S) resonances.

We find no evidence for charged kaons in these decay modes and place the first upper limits on their branching fractions.

Hadron structure in {tau}{yields}KK{pi}{nu}{sub {tau}}decays  

SciTech Connect

We analyze the hadronization structure of both vector and axial-vector currents leading to {tau}{yields}KK{pi}{nu}{sub {tau}}decays. At leading order in the 1/N{sub C} expansion, and considering only the contribution of the lightest resonances, we work out, within the framework of the resonance chiral Lagrangian, the structure of the local vertices involved in those processes. The couplings in the resonance theory are constrained by imposing the asymptotic behavior of vector and axial-vector spectral functions ruled by QCD. In this way we predict the hadron spectra and conclude that, contrary to previous assertions, the vector contribution dominates by far over the axial-vector one in all KK{pi} charge channels.

This paper reports on a search for lepton flavor violating decays of a {tau} lepton to a lighter-mass charged lepton and an {omega} vector meson. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 384 fb{sup -1} recorded by the BaBar experiment at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory. No evidence for a signal is found and the upper limits on the branching ratios are determined to be B({tau}{sup {+-}} {yields} e{sup {+-}}{omega}) < 1.1 x 10{sup -7} and B({tau}{sup {+-}} {yields} {mu}{sup {+-}}{omega}) < 1.0 x 10{sup -7} at 90% confidence level.

The polarization of tau leptons produced in e+e- --> tau+tau-(gamma) is measured using a sample of 8977 tau+tau - pairs collected near the peak of the Z0 resonance. A polarization of -0.132+\\/-0.026(stat)+\\/-0.021(syst.) is determined. This corresponds to a ratio of the vector to the axial-vector coupling constants of the tau lepton to the weak neutral current of gVtau\\/gAefftau = 0.067+\\/-0.017.

Order alphas4 QCD corrections to Z and tau decays.  

PubMed

Using recently developed methods for the evaluation of five-loop amplitudes in perturbative QCD, corrections of order alphas4 for the nonsinglet part of the cross section for electron-positron annihilation into hadrons and for the decay rates of the Z boson and the tau lepton into hadrons are evaluated. The new terms lead to a significant stabilization of the perturbative series, to a reduction of the theory uncertainly in the strong coupling constant alphas, as extracted from these measurements, and to a small shift of the central value, moving the two central values closer together. The agreement between two values of alphas measured at vastly different energies constitutes a striking test of asymptotic freedom. Combining the results from Z and tau decays we find alphas(MZ)=0.1198+/-0.0015 as one of the most precise and presently only result for the strong coupling constant in order alphas4. PMID:18764104

Measurements of Tau Lepton Production and Decay at SQRT.S = 29 GEV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Properties of the tau lepton were measured in data taken with the MAC detector at the PEP e('+)e('-) storage ring at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Approximately 27000 tau-pair events were pro- duced at a center of mass energy of 29 GeV and about half of these were selected from the data in order to study various properties of the tau. Precise measurements of the leptonic branching ratios of the tau yielded B((tau) (--->) (nu)(,(tau))e(nu)(,e)) = 0.174 (+OR-) 0.008 (+OR-) 0.005 and B((tau) (--->) (nu)(,(tau))(mu)(nu)(,(mu))) = 0.177 (+OR-) 0.008 (+OR-) 0.005. A precise measurement of the pion branching ratio yielded B((tau) (--->) (nu)(,(tau))(pi)) = 0.106 (+OR-) 0.004 (+OR-) 0.008. A search for tau decays into five charged hadrons was performed and an upper limit on the branching ratio for this decay mode was set at 0.0027 at the 95% confidence level. The Michel parameter was measured with the leptonic energy spectra and was found to be 0.79 (+OR-) 0.11 (+OR-) 0.09, consistent with the V - A hypothesis for the (tau) (nu)(,(tau)) - W vertex. Measurements of the coupling constants of the tau to the weak neutral current were made by observation of the forward-backward energy asymmetry of the tau decay products and their average energy. These measurements yielded g(,a)('e)g(,v)('(tau)) = (0.26 (+OR-) 0.31) x (1 (+OR-) 0.012) and g(,v)('e)g(,a)('(tau)) = (-0.05 (+OR-) 0.21 (+OR-) 0.34) respectively, consistent with the Glashow-Weinberg-Salam model of electroweak interactions.

Measurement of the branching fraction of the radiative decay tau- -> mu-numunutaugamma  

Microsoft Academic Search

The branching ratio of the radiative tau decay tau- -> mu-numunutaugamma has been measured using data collected with the OPAL detector at LEP. The result is B(tau- -> mu-numunutaugamma) = (3.0 +\\/- 0.4 +\\/- 0.5) × 10-3 for photon energies above 20 MeV measured in the tau rest frame. The result is in good agreement with the Standard Model expectation.

Measurement of the tau- to eta pi-pi+pi-nu tau Branching Fraction and a Search for a Second-Class Current in the tau- to eta'(958)pi-nu tau Decay  

SciTech Connect

The {tau}{sup -} {yields} {eta}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}} decay with the {eta} {yields} {gamma}{gamma} mode is studied using 384 fb{sup -1} of data collected by the BABAR detector. The branching fraction is measured to be (1.60 {+-} 0.05 {+-} 0.11) x 10{sup -4}. It is found that {tau}{sup -} {yields} f{sub 1}(1285){pi}{sup -} {nu}{sub {tau}} {yields} {eta}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}} is the dominant decay mode with a branching fraction of (1.11 {+-} 0.06 {+-} 0.05) x 10{sup -4}. The first error on the branching fractions is statistical and the second systematic. In addition, a 90% confidence level upper limit on the branching fraction of the {tau}{sup -} {yields} {eta}{prime}(958){pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}} decay is measured to be 7.2 x 10{sup -6}. This last decay proceeds through a second-class current and is expected to be forbidden in the limit of isospin symmetry.

Tables of measurements of the total branching fraction of tau lepton decays to modes with one charged particle are given along with the major individual branching fractions. The reason a combination of measurements and calculations is needed to display the discrepancy is described briefly. It is argued that uncertainties in measurements of the branching fractions for multiple photon decay modes prevent complete reliance on experiment. The multiple photon modes are discussed in more detail. Present research on experimental technique problems relative to the apparent discrepancy is summarized. (LEW)

We report a study of the decay t-?t-t+t-vt using the ARGUS detector at the DORIS II storage ring. Tau pairs were produced bye+e- annihilation at centre-of-mass energies near 10 GeV. We have observed about 1,700 events, corresponding to a branching ratio for t-?t-t+t-vt of (5.6±0.7)%. The dominant mode for this decay is observed to be?0p- in aJp=1+ spin state. The?0p-

Exclusive branching-fraction measurements of semileptonic tau decays into three charged hadrons, into phipi(-)nu tau, and into phi K(-)nu tau.

Using a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 342 fb(-1) collected with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II electron-positron storage ring operating at a center-of-mass energy near 10.58 GeV, we measure B(tau(-)--> pi(-)pi(-)pi+nu(tau)(ex.K(S0))=(8.83+/-0.01+/-0.13)%, B(tau(-) -->K(-)pi(-)pi+nu tau(ex.K(S0))=(0.273+/-0.002+/-0.009)%, B(tau(-) -->K(-)pi(-)K+nu tau)=(0.1346+/-0.0010+/-0.0036)%, and B(tau(-) -->K(-)K(-)K+nu tau)=(1.58+/-0.13+/-0.12)x10;{-5}, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. These include significant improvements over previous measurements and a first measurement of B(tau(-) -->K(-)K(-)K+nu tau) in which no resonance structure is assumed. We also report a first measurement of B(tau(-) -->var phi(-)nu tau)=(3.42+/-0.55+/-0.25)x10(-5), a new measurement of B(tau(-) -->var phi K(-)nu tau)=(3.39+/-0.20+/-0.28)x10(-5) and a first upper limit on B(tau(-) -->K(-)K(-)K+nu tau(ex.var phi)).

Measurement of Cabibbo-Suppressed Tau Lepton Decays and the Determination of |Vus|  

SciTech Connect

This work presents simultaneous branching fraction measurements of the decay modes {tau}{sup -} {yields} K{sup -} n{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}} with n = 0,1,2,3 and {tau}{sup -} {yields} {pi}{sup -} n{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}} with n = 3,4. The analysis is based on a data sample of 427 x 10{sup 6} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} pairs recorded with the BABAR detector, which corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 464.4 fb{sup -1}. The measured values are {Beta}({tau}{sup -} {yields} K{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}}) = (6.57 {+-} 0.03 {+-} 0.11) x 10{sup -3}, {Beta}({tau}{sup -} {yields} K{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}}) = (4.61 {+-} 0.03 {+-} 0.11) x 10{sup -3}, {Beta}({tau}{sup -} {yields} K{sup -} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}}) = (5.05 {+-} 0.17 {+-} 0.44) x 10{sup -4}, {Beta}({tau}{sup -} {yields} K{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}}) = (1.31 {+-} 0.43 {+-} 0.40) x 10{sup -4}, {Beta}({tau}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}}) = (1.263 {+-} 0.008 {+-} 0.078) x 10{sup -2} and {Beta}({tau}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}}) = (9.6 {+-} 0.5 {+-} 1.2) x 10{sup -4}, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. All measurements are compatible with the current world averages whereas the uncertainties are significantly smaller by a factor of up to five. The determination of {Beta}({tau}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}}) is the first measurement of this branching fraction. The measured branching fractions are combined with the current world averages. Using the new averages, an updated determination of |V{sub us}| from hadronic {tau} decays yields |V{sub us}| = 0.2146 {+-} 0.0025, which improves previous measurements by 19%. Its uncertainty is comparable to the one of the current world average from semileptonic kaon decays.

Leptonic decays of tau/sup -/ lepton: Finite. nu. /sub tau/ mass and effects of mass mixing  

SciTech Connect

A reexamination of the leptonic decays of the tau/sup -/ lepton with the inclusion of mass mixing of a hierarchical type provides mass limits as 389.98 +- 135.36 and 329.34 +- 172.07 MeV from the electronic and muonic decays, respectively. Slightly different values are obtained for Kobayashi-Maskawa mixing, but with no mass mixing, the limits are substantially higher. The decay probabilities are sensitive to mass mixing, whereas Michel spectra remain practically unaffected.

Kaon content of three-prong decays of the tau lepton  

SciTech Connect

We present a series of measurements involving the production of charged kaons in three-prong hadronic decays of the {tau} lepton. The data sample was obtained with the TPC/Two-Gamma detector facility at PEP. We set a limit on the branching fraction BR({tau}{sup {minus}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}}K{sup {minus}}K{sup 0}) < 0.26% at the 95% confidence level. The process {tau}{sup {minus}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}}K{sup {minus}}K{sup 0} is related via SU(3) to the second-class current decay {tau}{sup {minus}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}}{pi}{sup {minus}}{eta}. We also present new measurements of the three-prong branching fractions BR({tau}{sup {minus}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}}K{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}} + neutrals) = 0.70 (+0.20/{minus}0.17)% and BR({tau}{sup {minus}} {yields} {nu}{sub {tau}}K{sup {minus}}K{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}} + neutrals) = 0.16 (+0.10/{minus}0.07)%. 68 refs., 29 figs., 15 tabs.

Study of tau decays to six-pion final states  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Using the data collected with the CLEO detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, we have studied decays of the tau lepton to final states with six pions and one neutrino. The measured branching fractions are B(t- -->2p -p+3p0n t) = (2.2 +/- 0.3 +/- 0.4) × 10-4 and B(t--->3p -2p+p0n t) = (1.7 +/- 0.2 +/- 0.2) × 10-4. These represent significant improvement over previous measurements. We have also looked for resonance substructure and observed for the first time the decays t- -->p-2p0 wnt and t--->2p- p+ wnt . The measured branching fractions are B(t- -->p -2p0wnt ) = (1.5 +/- 0.4 +/- 0.3) × 10-4 and B(t--->2p -p+wnt ) = (1.2 +/- 0.2 +/- 0.1) × 10-4, respectively. We have also measured the branching fractions of t--->2p- p+ hnt in two h decay modes - B(t- -->2p -p+hnt ) = (2.9 +/- 0.7 +/- 0.5) × 10-4 ( h-->3p0 ) and B(t- -->2p -p+hnt ) = (1.9 +/- 0.4 +/- 0.3) × 10-4 ( h-->p+p- p 0 ). We have observed the decay t- -->p-2p0 hnt with h-->p+p- p 0 and measured the branching fraction B(t--->p -2p0hnt ) = (1.5 +/- 0.6 +/- 0.3) × 10-4. The observed resonance substructure allowed the determination of the axial- vector and vector current contributions to the six-pion tau decays. The results are compared to the expectations based on isospin symmetry and the Conserved Vector Current hypothesis.

{alpha}{sub s} from the Lattice and Hadronic {tau} Decays  

SciTech Connect

Until recently, determinations of {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub z}) from hadronic {tau} decays and the analysis of short-distance-sensitive lattice observables yielded results which, though precise, were not in good agreement. I review new analyses that bring these into good agreement and provide some details on the source of the main changes in the {tau} decay analysis.

Search for doubly charged Higgs bosons with lepton-flavour-violating decays involving tau leptons  

SciTech Connect

The authors search for pair production of doubly charged Higgs particles (H{sup {+-}{+-}}) followed by decays into electron-tau (e{tau}) and muon-tau ({mu}{tau}) pairs using a data set corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 350 pb{sup -1} collected from {bar p}p collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV by the CDF II experiment. They search separately for cases where three or four final-state leptons are detected, and then combine the results into limits for each exclusive flavor decay mode of the H{sup {+-}{+-}}. Assuming 100% branching ratios of the H{sup {+-}{+-}} to left-handed e{tau} ({mu}{tau}) pairs, they set an H{sup {+-}{+-}} lower mass limit of 114 (112) GeV/c{sup 2} at the 95% confidence level (C.L.).

We use a data sample of 2.8×106 produced tau-pair events, obtained with the CLEO II detector, to measure B(tau--->h-h+h-(pi0)nutau), where h refers to either a charged pi or K. These branching fractions are measured with samples of lepton-tagged and 3 vs 3 events. We find B(tau--->h-h+h-nutau)=0.0951+\\/-0.0007 m*0.0020 and B(tau--->h-h+h-pi0nutau)=0.0423+\\/- .0006+\\/-0.0022. We also measure B(tau--->omegah-nutau)=0.0195+\\/-0.0007+\\/-0.0011

Muon anomalous magnetic moment and lepton flavor violating tau decay in unparticle physics  

SciTech Connect

We study the effects of unparticle physics on muon g-2 and lepton flavor violating (LFV) tau decay processes. LFV interactions between the standard model sector and unparticles can explain the difference of the experimental value of muon g-2 from the standard model prediction. While the same couplings generate LFV tau decay, we found that LFV coupling can be of O(0.1...1) without conflict with the experimental bounds of LFV tau decay if the scaling dimension of unparticle operator d{sub U} > or approx. 1.6.

A Precise Measurement of the Tau Lifetime

The tau lepton lifetime has been measured with the e+e- -> tau+tau- events collected by the DELPHI detector at LEP in the years 1991-1995. Three different methods have been exploited, using both one-prong and three-prong tau decay channels. Two measurements have been made using events in which both taus decay to a single charged particle. Combining these measurements gave tau_tau

Using the CLEO II detector operating at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR) e+e- collider, we have measured the structure functions in the decay tau-\\/+-->pi-\\/+pi0pi0nutau, based on a sample corresponding to 4×106 produced tau-pair events. We determine the integrated structure functions, which depend only on the three pion invariant mass, as well as the structure functions differential in the Dalitz

Lepton-flavor-violating decay {tau}{yields}{mu}{mu}{mu} at the CERN LHC  

SciTech Connect

Lepton-flavor-violating {tau} decays are predicted in many extensions of the standard model at a rate observable at future collider experiments. In this article we focus on the decay {tau}{yields}{mu}{mu}{mu}, which is a promising channel to observe lepton-flavor violation at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). We present analytic expressions for the differential decay width derived from a model-independent effective Lagrangian with general four-fermion operators, and estimate the experimental acceptance for detecting the decay {tau}{yields}{mu}{mu}{mu} at the LHC. Specific emphasis is given to decay angular distributions and how they can be used to discriminate new physics models. We provide specific predictions for various extensions of the standard model, including supersymmetric, little Higgs, and technicolor models.

Tauopathies and tau oligomers.  

PubMed

Tauopathies are neurodegenerative diseases characterized behaviorally by dementia and neuropathologically by neurofibrillary tangles and neuronal loss. Tau gene mutations have been found in frontotemporal dementia with parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17, suggesting that mutation of tau induces tauopathy. Studies on in vitro tau aggregation show that tau forms two different intermediate aggregates--called tau oligomers and granular tau oligomers--before forming fibrils. Moreover, studies using a mouse model that expresses human tau demonstrated that the process of neurofibrillary tangle formation, rather than tangles themselves, may cause synapse loss and neuron loss. Further analyses suggest that hyperphosphorylated tau or oligomeric tau is involved in synaptic loss, whereas granular tau oligomers are responsible for neuronal loss. Thus, different forms of tau aggregates are involved in the different pathological changes that occur in tauopathies. PMID:23948895

With a data sample of 86 000 Z --> tau+tau-(gamma) events collected in 1990 through 1993 we have measured the polarization of tau-leptons as a function of the production polar angle using the following 1-prong tau decay modes: tau--->e-vevtau, tau--->pi- (K-)vtau, tau--->varrho-vtau and tau--->a1-vtau. We obtain for the ratio vector to axial-vector weak neutral couplings for electrons gVe\\/gAe=0.0791+\\/-0.0099(stat)+\\/-0.0025 (syst) and

What Renders TAU Toxic  

PubMed Central

TAU is a microtubule-associated protein that under pathological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) forms insoluble, filamentous aggregates. When 20?years after TAU’s discovery the first TAU transgenic mouse models were established, one declared goal that was achieved was the modeling of authentic TAU aggregate formation in the form of neurofibrillary tangles. However, as we review here, it has become increasingly clear that TAU causes damage much before these filamentous aggregates develop. In fact, because TAU is a scaffolding protein, increased levels and an altered subcellular localization (due to an increased insolubility and impaired clearance) result in the interaction of TAU with cellular proteins with which it would otherwise either not interact or do so to a lesser degree, thereby impairing their physiological functions. We specifically discuss the non-axonal localization of TAU, the role phosphorylation has in TAU toxicity and how TAU impairs mitochondrial functions. A major emphasis is on what we have learned from the four available TAU knock-out models in mice, and the knock-out of the TAU/MAP2 homolog PTL-1 in worms. It has been proposed that in human pathological conditions such as AD, a rare toxic TAU species exists which needs to be specifically removed to abrogate TAU’s toxicity and restore neuronal functions. However, what is toxic in one context may not be in another, and simply reducing, but not fully abolishing TAU levels may be sufficient to abrogate TAU toxicity.

First Observation of the Decay {tau}{sup {minus}} {r_arrow} K{sup {asterisk}{minus}}{eta}{nu}{sub {tau}}  

SciTech Connect

The decay {tau}{sup {minus}}{r_arrow}K{sup {asterisk}{minus}}{eta}{nu}{sub {tau}} has been observed with the CLEOthinspthinspII detector. The K{sup {asterisk}{minus}} is reconstructed in two decay channels, K{sup {asterisk}{minus}}{r_arrow}K{sub S}{pi}{sup {minus}}{r_arrow} {pi}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}} and K{sup {asterisk}{minus}}{r_arrow}K{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup 0} . The {eta} is reconstructed from the decay {eta}{r_arrow}{gamma}{gamma} . The measured branching fraction is B({tau}{sup {minus}}{r_arrow}K{sup {asterisk}{minus}} {eta}{nu}{sub {tau}})=(2.9{plus_minus} 0.8{plus_minus}0.4){times}10{sup {minus}4} . We also measure the inclusive branching fractions without requiring the K{sup {asterisk}} resonance, B({tau}{sup {minus}}{r_arrow}K{sub S}{pi}{sup {minus}}{eta}{nu}{sub {tau}})=(1.10 {plus_minus}0.35{plus_minus}0.11){times}10{sup {minus}4} and B({tau}{sup {minus}}{r_arrow}K{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup 0}{eta}{nu}{sub {tau}})=(1.77 {plus_minus}0.56{plus_minus}0.71){times}10{sup {minus}4} . The results indicate that the K{sup {asterisk}{minus}} resonance dominates the K{sub S}{pi}{sup {minus}} mass spectrum. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}

Search for Higgs bosons decaying into tau pairs in ppbar collisions at D0  

SciTech Connect

A search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying into tau pairs is presented using data in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. One of the tau leptons is identified via its decay into an electron or muon and the other via its decay into a hadronic final state. The data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of around 1.0 fb{sup -1}, were collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider between April 2002 and February 2006. No significant excess of events above the background expectation is observed and limits on the cross section times branching ratio for neutral Higgs bosons decaying into tau pairs, p{bar p} {yields} {phi} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}, are set. The cross section limits are interpreted as exclusions in the parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric Standard Model, resulting in exclusions in the range 40 < tan{beta} < 70 for M{sub A} < 200 GeV. Finally, the effect of Higgs bosons with a large total width is considered and the first model independent correction to the cross section limits for the width effect is presented.

We search separately for cases where three or four final-state leptons are detected, and combine results for exclusive decays to left-handed etau (mutau) pairs. We set an H+/- +/- lower mass limit of 114(112) GeV/c(2) at the 95% confidence level. PMID:18851361

Neutrino mixing effects,. tau. leptonic decays, and the solar-neutrino problem  

SciTech Connect

It is assumed that a heavy right-handed Majorana neutrino (or more) which is a weak SU(2) singlet exists and its mixing with regular neutrinos causes a Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa-type matrix. This mixing effect may interpret some problems in {tau} leptonic decays. To be consistent with the requirements from both the seesaw mechanism and data on {ital Z}{sup 0} decay, the fourth generation with a heavy neutrino is needed. This also possibly provides a large destructive interference between contributions of magnetic moments of the electron neutrino and {tau} neutrino to explain away the puzzle about the deficiency of the solar-neutrino flux.

A Search for the Rare Leptonic B- to tau- anti-neutrino Recoiling against B+ to Decays to anti-D*0 l+ Lepton-neutrino  

SciTech Connect

This thesis describes a search for the decay B{sup -} {yields} {tau}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}} in 231.8 x 10{sup 6} {Upsilon}(4S) decays recorded with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II B-Factory. A sample of events with one reconstructed exclusive semi-leptonic B decay (B{sup +} {yields} {bar D}*{sup 0} {ell}{sup +}{nu}{sub {ell}}) is selected, and in the recoil a search for B{sup -} {yields} {tau}{sup -} {bar {nu}}{sub {tau}} signal is performed in the following {tau} decay modes: {tau}{sup -} {yields} e{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub e}{nu}{sub {tau}}, {tau}{sup -} {yields} {mu}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {mu}}{nu}{sub {tau}}, {tau}{sup -} {yields} {pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}}, {tau}{sup -} {yields} {pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}}, and {tau}{sup -} {yields} {pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}}. They find no evidence of signal, and they set a preliminary upper limit on the branching fraction of {beta}(B{sup -} {yields} {tau}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}}) < 2.8 x 10{sup -4} at the 90% confidence level (CL). This result is then combined with a statistically independent BABAR search for B{sup -} {yields} {tau}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}} to give a combined preliminary limit of {Beta}(B{sup -} {yields} {tau}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}}) < 2.6 x 10{sup -4} at 90% CL.

Measurement of the branching fractions and the invariant mass distributions for {tau}{sup -{yields}}h{sup -}h{sup +}h{sup -{nu}}{sub {tau}}decays

We present a study of {tau}{sup -{yields}{pi}-{pi}+{pi}-{nu}}{sub {tau}}, {tau}{sup -{yields}}K{sup -{pi}+{pi}-{nu}}{sub {tau}}, {tau}{sup -{yields}}K{sup -}K{sup +{pi}-{nu}}{sub {tau}}, and {tau}{sup -{yields}}K{sup -}K{sup +}K{sup -{nu}}{sub {tau}} decays using a 666 fb{sup -1} data sample collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e{sup +}e{sup -} collider at and near a center-of-mass energy of 10.58 GeV. The branching fractions are measured to be B({tau}{sup -{yields}{pi}-{pi}+{pi}-{nu}}{sub {tau}})=(8.42{+-}0.00{sub -0.25}{sup +0.26})x10{sup -2}, B({tau}{sup -{yields}}K{sup -{pi}+{pi}-{nu}}{sub {tau}})=(3.30{+-}0.01{sub -0.17}{sup +0.16})x10{sup -3}, B({tau}{sup -{yields}}K{sup -}K{sup +{pi}-{nu}}{sub {tau}})=(1.55{+-}0.01{sub -0.05}{sup +0.06})x10{sup -3}, and B({tau}{sup -{yields}}K{sup -}K{sup +}K{sup -{nu}}{sub {tau}})=(3.29{+-}0.17{sub -0.20}{sup +0.19})x10{sup -5}, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. These branching fractions do not include contributions from modes in which a {pi}{sup +{pi}-} pair originates from a K{sub S}{sup 0} decay. We also present the unfolded invariant mass distributions for these decays.

Hadronic structure in the decay {tau}{sup -}{yields}{nu}{sub {tau}}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} and the sign of the tau neutrino helicity  

SciTech Connect

Based on a sample corresponding to 4.3x10{sup 6} produced {tau}-pair events, we have studied hadronic dynamics in the decay {tau}{sup -}{yields}{nu}{sub {tau}}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} in data recorded by the CLEO II detector operating at the CESR e{sup +}e{sup -} collider. The decay is dominated by the process {tau}{sup -}{yields}{nu}{sub {tau}}a{sub 1}{sup -}(1260), with the a{sub 1}{sup -} meson decaying to three pions predominantly via the lowest dimensional (mainly S-wave) {rho}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0} Born amplitude. From model-dependent fits to the Dalitz plot and angular observables in bins of 3{pi} mass, we find significant additional contributions from amplitudes for a{sub 1} decay to {sigma}{pi}, f{sub 0}(1370){pi}, and f{sub 2}(1270){pi}, as well as higher dimensional a{sub 1}{yields}{rho}{pi} and {rho}{sup '}{pi} amplitudes. Notably, the squared {sigma}{pi} amplitude accounts for approximately 15% of the total {tau}{sup -}{yields}{nu}{sub {tau}}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} rate in the models considered. The data are well described using couplings to these amplitudes that are independent of the 3{pi} mass. These amplitudes also provide a good description for the {tau}{sup -}{yields}{nu}{sub {tau}}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} Dalitz plot distributions. We have searched for additional contributions from {tau}{sup -}{yields}{nu}{sub {tau}}{pi}{sup '}-(1300). We place 90% confidence level upper limits on the branching fraction for this channel of between 1.0x10{sup -4} and 1.9x10{sup -4}, depending on the {pi}{sup '} decay mode considered. The {pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{pi}{sup 0} mass spectrum is parametrized by a Breit-Wigner form with a mass-dependent width which is specified according to the results of the Dalitz plot fits plus an unknown coupling to an a{sub 1}{yields}K{sup *}K amplitude. From a {chi}{sup 2} fit using this parametrization, we extract the pole mass and width of the a{sub 1}, as well as the magnitude of the K{sup *}K coupling. We have also investigated the impact of a possible contribution from the a{sub 1}{sup '}(1700) meson on this spectrum. Finally, exploiting the parity-violating angular asymmetry in a{sub 1}{yields}3{pi} decay, we determine the signed value of the {tau} neutrino helicity to be h{sub {nu}}{sub {tau}}=-1.02{+-}0.13 (stat){+-}0.03 (syst+model), confirming the left-handedness of the {tau} neutrino.

Measurement of the tau lepton polarization and its forward-backward asymmetry from Z0 decays  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report on a measurement of the tau lepton polarization and its forward-backward asymmetry at the Z0 resonance using the OPAL detector. This measurement is based on analyses of thetau to ebar v_e v_tau ,tau to ? bar v_? v_tau , ???(K) v ? and ?? ? v ? from a sample of 30663 e+e+??+?- events collected during the years 1990 to 1992. Assuming that the tau lepton decays according to V-A theory, we measure the average ? polarization to be < P ?>=(-14.9±1.9±1.3)% and the ? polarization forward-backward asymmetry to be A{/pol FB }=(-8.9±2.2±0.9)%, where the first error is statistical and the second systematic. These results are consistent with the hypothesis of lepton universality. When combined under the assumption of universality, our results can be interpreted as a measurement of sin2 ? {eff/lept}=0.2321±0.0023 within the context of the Standard Model.

Ultrahigh Energy Tau Neutrinos  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We study ultrahigh energy astrophysical neutrinos and the contribution of tau neutrinos from neutrino oscillations, relative to the contribution of the other flavors. We show the effect of tau neutrino regeneration and tau energy loss as they propagate through the Earth. We consider a variety of neutrino fluxes, such as cosmogenic neutrinos and neutrinos that originate in Active Galactic Nuclei. We discuss signals of tau neutrinos in detectors such as IceCube, RICE and ANITA.

Neutrino mixing effects, tau leptonic decays, and the solar-neutrino problem  

Microsoft Academic Search

It is assumed that a heavy right-handed Majorana neutrino (or more) which is a weak SU(2) singlet exists and its mixing with regular neutrinos causes a Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa-type matrix. This mixing effect may interpret some problems in tau leptonic decays. To be consistent with the requirements from both the seesaw mechanism and data on Z0 decay, the fourth generation with a

New results on the tau lepton  

SciTech Connect

This is a review of new results on the tau lepton. The results include precise measurements of the lifetime, measurements of the decay tau/sup -/ ..-->.. ..pi../sup -/2..pi../sup 0/nu/sub tau/ with much improved precision, and limits on decay modes containing eta mesons, including the second-class-current decay tau/sup -/ ..-->.. ..pi../sup -/eta nu/sub tau/. The implications of these new results on the discrepancy in the one-charged-particle decay modes are discussed. 52 refs., 6 figs., 2 tabs.

Observation of top quarks in the dilepton decay channel t{anti t} {yields} e({mu}){upsilon}{sub e({mu})} {tau}{upsilon}{sub {tau}} b{anti b} using hadronic tau decays at CDF  

SciTech Connect

We present a search for dilepton events from top decays with one electron or muon and a hadronically decaying {tau} lepton. The total acceptance x efficiency is (O.119 {+-} 0.014({ital stat}))% for {ital m{sub top}} = 175 GeV. In 110 pb{sup -1} of data we expect 1.1 {+-} 0. 3({ital stat}) signal events and a total background of 1.96 {+-} 0.35({ital stat}) events while observing 4 candidate events (2 {ital e}{tau} and 2 {mu}{tau}). Three events are {ital b}-tagged. If a tag is required, the probability for the estimated background (0.225 {+-} 0.011 events) to fluctuate to {>=} 3 events is 0.13% (3.0 {sigma}). A first measurement of the {ital t{anti t}} production cross section based on these events yields {sigma}{sub t{anti t}} = 15.6{sup +18. 6}{sub -13.2}({ital stat}) pb.

Hadronic decays of the tau lepton into KK{pi} modes within Resonance Chiral Theory  

SciTech Connect

{tau} decays into hadrons have a twofold interest: On the one hand, they are a clean environment for studying the hadronization of the left-handed current of QCD, while, on the other side, provide relevant dynamical information of the resonances that mediate these processes. Within an effective field theory-like framework, namely Resonance Chiral Theory, we analyse the decays ot the {tau} into KK{pi} modes and compare the results with CLEO and BaBar data. In this way, we provide bounds on the couplings entering our Lagrangian and predict the corresponding spectral functions. As a main result -and contrary to the bulk of theoretical studies and experimental analyses- we find vector current dominance on these decays.

Observation of the semileptonic decays B-->D*tau-nutau and evidence for B-->Dtau-nutau.  

PubMed

We present measurements of the semileptonic decays B--->D0tau-nutau, B--->D*0tau-nutau, B0-->D+tau-nutau, and B0-->D*+tau-nutau, which are potentially sensitive to non-standard model amplitudes. The data sample comprises 232x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BB decays collected with the BABAR detector. From a combined fit to B- and B0 channels, we obtain the branching fractions B(B-->Dtau-nutau)=(0.86+/-0.24+/-0.11+/-0.06)% and B(B-->D*tau-nutau)=(1.62+/-0.31+/-0.10+/-0.05)% (normalized for the B0), where the uncertainties are statistical, systematic, and normalization-mode-related.

Evidence for an excess of B to D(*) Tau Nu decays  

SciTech Connect

Based on the full BABAR data sample, we report improved measurements of the ratios R(D{sup (*)}) = {Beta}({bar B} {yields} D{sup (*)} {tau}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}})/{Beta}({bar B} {yields} D{sup (*)} {ell}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {ell}}), where {ell} is either e or {mu}. These ratios are sensitive to new physics contributions in the form of a charged Higgs boson. We measure R(D) = 0.440 {+-} 0.058 {+-} 0.042 and R(D*) = 0.332 {+-} 0.024 {+-} 0.018, which exceed the Standard Model expectations by 2.0{sigma} and 2.7{sigma}, respectively. Taken together, our results disagree with these expectations at the 3.4{sigma} level. This excess cannot be explained by a charged Higgs boson in the type II two-Higgs-doublet model. We also report the observation of the decay {bar B} {yields} D{tau}{sup -} {bar {nu}}{sub {tau}}, with a significance of 6.8{sigma}.

The Tau Lepton and the Search for New Elementary Particle Physics  

SciTech Connect

This Fifth International WEIN Symposium is devoted to physics beyond the standard model. This talk is about tau lepton physics, but I begin with the question: do we know how to find new physics in the world of elementary particles? This question is interwoven with the various tau physics topics. These topics are: searching for unexpected tau decay modes; searching for additional tau decay mechanisms; radiative tau decays; tau decay modes of the W, B, and D; decay of the Z{sup 0} to tau pairs; searching for CP violation in tau decay; the tau neutrino, dreams and odd ideas in tau physics; and tau research facilities in the next decades.

Strange-quark mass from tau-lepton decays with O(alpha3s) accuracy.  

PubMed

The first complete calculation of the quadratic quark mass correction to the correlator of the two currents relevant for the strangeness-changing semihadronic tau-decay rate is presented including its real part at the four-loop level. This allows us to perform the extraction of the strange-quark mass m(s) from the decay width of the tau-lepton with full O(alpha3s) accuracy. In agreement with previous estimates, the newly computed alpha3s term proves to be rather large. This justifies inclusion of the similarly estimated alpha4s term in phenomenological analysis. Combined with an updated value of V us and an "improved" version of the renormalization group improvement of the perturbative series, this leads to an increase of the central value of m(s) by about 20% and a partial reduction of the theoretical uncertainty by about 50%.

Tau Trigger at the ATLAS Experiment  

SciTech Connect

Many theoretical models, like the Standard Model or SUSY at large tan({beta}), predict Higgs bosons or new particles which decay more abundantly to final states including tau leptons than to other leptons. At the energy scale of the LHC, the identification of tau leptons, in particular in the hadronic decay mode, will be a challenging task due to an overwhelming QCD background which gives rise to jets of particles that can be hard to distinguish from hadronic tau decays. Equipped with excellent tracking and calorimetry, the ATLAS experiment has developed tau identification tools capable of working at the trigger level. This contribution presents tau trigger algorithms which exploit the main features of hadronic tau decays and describes the current tau trigger commissioning activities. Many of the SM processes being investigated at ATLAS, as well as numerous BSM searches, contain tau leptons in their final states. Being able to trigger effectively on the tau leptons in these events will contribute to the success of the ATLAS experiment. The tau trigger algorithms and monitoring infrastructure are ready for the first data, and are being tested with the data collected with cosmic muons. The development of efficiency measurements methods using QCD and Z {yields} {tau}{tau} events is well advanced.

Tau immunotherapy and imaging.  

PubMed

Disappointing findings from recent phase III trials on amyloid-? (A?) immunotherapy for Alzheimer's disease (AD) have shifted the focus of such treatments to the tau protein. As tau pathology correlates better with the degree of dementia than A? plaque burden, it is a more attractive target once cognitive impairments are evident, while A? therapies may be better suited for the presymptomatic phase of the disease. Over 12 years ago, we initiated a tau immunotherapy program, seeking to alleviate the functional impairments associated with tau lesions in tauopathies. We have reported that various active and passive tau immunizations diminish tau pathology and improve function, including cognition, in different mouse models. Both extra- and intracellular pathways are likely involved. The antibodies may block the spread of tau pathology via microglial phagocytosis of the antibody-tau complex and facilitate lysosomal tau clearance in neurons after endosomal uptake. We have observed such antibody internalization following intracarotid injection in mice and in various culture models. These include brain slices and primary neurons from tangle mice as well as human neuroblastoma cell lines. Antibody targeting of different intracellular protein aggregates, including ?-synuclein, A? and superoxide dismutase has been reported by others. Now, several laboratories have confirmed and extended our findings using various active and passive tau immunizations in different models, thereby clearly establishing the feasibility of this approach for clinical trials. We are also working on imaging approaches to monitor tau pathology, its consequences and the efficacy of treatments. Dire need exists for such diagnostic methods for tauopathies. Overall, therapies and diagnostic tools targeting tau pathology have a great potential for AD and other tauopathies. PMID:24029727

Research towards tau imaging.  

PubMed

Tau-bearing neurofibrillary lesions present a promising biomarker for premortem diagnosis and staging of Alzheimer's disease and certain forms of frontotemporal lobar degeneration by whole brain imaging methods. Although brain penetrating compounds capable of binding tau aggregates with high affinity have been disclosed for this purpose, the major barrier to progress remains the need for tau lesion binding selectivity relative to amyloid-beta plaques and other deposits of proteins in cross-beta-sheet conformation. Here we discuss challenges faced in the development of tau lesion-selective imaging agents, and recent preclinical advances in pursuit of this goal. PMID:21971459

A search for the lepton flavour violating decay {tau}{sup {+-}} {yields} {mu}{sup {+-}}{gamma} has been performed using 221.4 fb{sup -1} of data collected at an e{sup +}e{sup -} centre-of-mass energy of 10.58 GeV with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II storage ring. The search has an efficiency of 7.45 {+-} 0.65% for an expected background level of 6.2 {+-} 0.5 events. In the final sample 4 candidate events are selected. As there is no evidence for a signal in this data, for this preliminary result we set an upper limit of {Beta}({tau}{sup {+-}} {yields} {mu}{sup {+-}}{gamma}) < 9 x 10{sup -8} at 90% CL using the method of Feldman and Cousins.

Limits on tau lepton flavor violating decays in three charged leptons  

SciTech Connect

A search for the neutrinoless, lepton-flavor violating decay of the {tau} lepton into three charged leptons has been performed using an integrated luminosity of 468 fb{sup -1} collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II collider. In all six decay modes considered, the numbers of events found in data are compatible with the background expectations. Upper limits on the branching fractions are set in the range (1.8-3.3) x 10{sup -8} at 90% confidence level.

Selected results from {tau} analyses performed using the BABAR detector at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are presented. A precise measurement of the {tau} mass and the {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} mass difference is undertaken using the hadronic decay mode {tau}{sup {+-}} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup {+-}}{nu}{sub {tau}}. In addition an investigation into the strange decay modes {tau}{sup -} {yields} K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}{nu}{sub {tau}} and {tau}{sup -} {yields} K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}} is also presented, including a fit to the {tau}{sup -} {yields} K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}} invariant mass spectrum. Precise values for M(K*(892)) and {Lambda}(K*(892)) are obtained.

Search for the Higgs Boson decaying into tau pairs  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson decaying into ? pairs is performed using events recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2011 and 2012. An excess of events is observed over a broad range of Higgs mass hypotheses, with a maximum local significance of 2.93 standard deviations at mH = 120 GeV. The excess is compatible with the presence of a standard-model Higgs boson of mass 125 GeV/c2.

CP violation in B?D??? using multipion tau decays  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Present experimental data shows a 3.8?-level discrepancy with the standard model in ?¯?. Some new physics models have been considered to explain this discrepancy that propose a possible new source of CP violation. In this paper, we construct CP-violating observables by using multipion decays in B?D???, and estimate the sensitivity of these observables to generic CP-violating operators. We also discuss the possibilities of CP violation in leptoquark models and in the type-III two-Higgs-doublet model.

Search for CP Violation in {tau}{sup {+-}}{yields}K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup {+-}}{nu}{sub {tau}} Decays at Belle  

SciTech Connect

We report on a search for CP violation in {tau}{sup {+-}}{yields}K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup {+-}}{nu}{sub {tau}} decays using a data sample of 699 fb{sup -1} collected by the Belle experiment at the KEKB electron-positron asymmetric-energy collider. The CP asymmetry is measured in four bins of the invariant mass of the K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup {+-}} system and found to be compatible with zero with a precision of O(10{sup -3}) in each mass bin. Limits for the CP violation parameter Im({eta}{sub S}) are given at the 90% confidence level. These limits are |Im({eta}{sub S})|<0.026 or better, depending on the parametrization used to describe the hadronic form factors, and improve upon previous limits by 1 order of magnitude.

Search for Higgs Bosons Decaying to Tau Pairs in p pmacr Collisions with the D0 Detector  

Microsoft Academic Search

We present a search for the production of neutral Higgs bosons varphi decaying into tau+tau- final states in p pmacr collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV. The data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately 1fb-1, were collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. Limits on the production cross section times branching ratio are set.

Measurement of the tau-lepton lifetime  

SciTech Connect

We report a new and precise measurement of the lifetime of the tau lepton. The data were taken with the High Resolution Spectrometer at the SLAC e/sup +/e/sup -/ colliding-beam facility PEP operating at 29 GeV center-of-mass energy. The flight distances of 1311 tau decays to three charged particles were measured with a four-layer tubular-cell vertex chamber in conjunction with the main drift chamber. The resulting lifetime of the tau lepton is tau/sub tau/(2.99 +- 0.15 +- 0.10) x 10/sup -13/ sec.

Application of the bootstrap statistical method to the tau-decay-mode problem  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The bootstrap statistical method is applied to the discrepancy in the one-charged-particle decay modes of the tau lepton. This eliminates questions about the correctness of the errors ascribed to the branching-fraction measurements and the use of Gaussian error distributions for systematic errors. The discrepancy is still seen when the results of the bootstrap analysis are combined with other measurements and with deductions from theory. But the bootstrap method assigns less statistical significance to the discrepancy compared to a method using Gaussian error distributions.

Search for the Baryon and Lepton Number Violating Decays tau to Lambda h  

SciTech Connect

The authors have searched for the violation of baryon number B and lepton number L in the (B-L)-conserving modes {tau}{sup -} {yields} {bar {Lambda}}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -} and {tau}{sup -} {yields} {bar {Lambda}}{sup 0}K{sup -} as well as the (B-L)-violating modes {tau}{sup -} {yields} {Lambda}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -} and {tau}{sup -} {yields} {Lambda}{sup 0}K{sup -} using 237 fb{sup -1} of data collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e{sup +}e{sup -} storage ring. They do not observe any signal and determine preliminary upper limits on the branching fractions {Beta}({tau}{sup -} {yields} {bar {Lambda}}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}) < 5.9 x 10{sup -8}, {Beta}({tau}{sup -} {yields} {Lambda}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}) < 5.8 x 10{sup -8}, {Beta}({tau}{sup -} {yields} {bar {Lambda}}{sup 0}K{sup -}) < 7.2 x 10{sup -8}, and {Beta}({tau}{sup -} {yields} {Lambda}{sup 0}K{sup -}) < 15 x 10{sup -8} at 90% confidence level.

Measurement of the branching fraction for gamma (1S) --> tau+tau-  

Microsoft Academic Search

We have studied the leptonic decay of the gamma (1S) resonance into tau pairs using the CLEO II detector. A clean sample of tau pair events is identified via events containing two charged particles where exactly one of the particles is an identified electron. We find B(gamma(1S) --> tau+tau-) = (2.61+\\/-0.12-0.13+0.09)%. The result is consistent with expectations from lepton universality

Four-pion production in {tau} decays and e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation: An update  

SciTech Connect

An improved description of four-pion production in electron-positron annihilation and in {tau}-lepton decays is presented. The model amplitude is fitted to recent data from BABAR which cover a wide energy range and which were obtained exploiting the radiative return. Predicting {tau}-decay distributions from e{sup +}e{sup -} data and comparing these predictions with ALEPH and CLEO results, the validity of isospin symmetry is confirmed within the present experimental errors. A good description of two- and three-pion subdistributions is obtained. Special emphasis is put on the predictions for {omega}{pi}({yields}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}) in e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation and in {tau} decay. The model amplitude is implemented in the Monte Carlo generator PHOKHARA.

Tau-tubulin kinase  

PubMed Central

Tau-tubulin kinase (TTBK) belongs to casein kinase superfamily and phosphorylates microtubule-associated protein tau and tubulin. TTBK has two isoforms, TTBK1 and TTBK2, which contain highly homologous catalytic domains but their non-catalytic domains are distinctly different. TTBK1 is expressed specifically in the central nervous system and is involved in phosphorylation and aggregation of tau. TTBK2 is ubiquitously expressed in multiple tissues and genetically linked to spinocerebellar ataxia type 11. TTBK1 directly phosphorylates tau protein, especially at Ser422, and also activates cycline-dependent kinase 5 in a unique mechanism. TTBK1 protein expression is significantly elevated in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) brains, and genetic variations of the TTBK1 gene are associated with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease in two cohorts of Chinese and Spanish populations. TTBK1 transgenic mice harboring the entire 55-kilobase genomic sequence of human TTBK1 show progression of tau accumulation, neuroinflammation, and neurodegeneration when crossed with tau mutant mice. Our recent study shows that there is a striking switch in mononuclear phagocyte and activation phenotypes in the anterior horn of the spinal cord from alternatively activated (M2-skewed) microglia in P301L tau mutant mice to pro-inflammatory (M1-skewed) infiltrating peripheral monocytes by crossing the tau mice with TTBK1 transgenic mice. TTBK1 is responsible for mediating M1-activated microglia-induced neurotoxicity, and its overexpression induces axonal degeneration in vitro. These studies suggest that TTBK1 is an important molecule for the inflammatory axonal degeneration, which may be relevant to the pathobiology of tauopathy including AD.

Search for Lepton Flavour Violating Decays Tau- to L- K0(S) and Tau- to L- (Rho0, K*0, Anti-K*0, Phi) at BaBar  

SciTech Connect

We report on recent searches for lepton flavour violating decays of the {tau} lepton: {tau}{sup -} {yields} {ell}{sup -} K{sub S}{sup 0}, {tau}{sup -} {yields} {ell}{sup -}({rho}{sup 0}, K*{sup 0}, {bar K}*{sup 0}, {phi}). These preliminary results use data samples collected by the BaBar detector at the SLAC PEP-II B factory corresponding to integrated luminosities of 469 fb{sup -1} for the {tau}{sup -} {yields} {ell}{sup -}K{sub S}{sup 0} and 451 fb{sup -1} for the {tau}{sup -} {yields} {ell}{sup -}({rho}{sup 0}, K*{sup 0}, {bar K}*{sup 0}, {phi}) searches. No statistically significant signal has been observed in any of these channels and we set upper limits on their branching fractions between 0.8-18.2 x 10{sup -8} at 90% confidence level.

Search for lepton-flavor and lepton-number violation in the decay tau(-) -->l-(+)h+(-)h'(-).  

PubMed

A search for lepton-flavor and lepton-number violation in the decay of the tau lepton into one charged lepton and two charged hadrons is performed using 221.4 fb(-1) of data collected at an e+e- center-of-mass energy of 10.58 GeV with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II storage ring. In all 14 decay modes considered, the observed data are compatible with background expectations, and upper limits are set in the range B(tau-->lhh')<(0.7 - 4.8) x 10(-7) at 90% confidence level.

Determining the CP parity of Higgs bosons via their tau decay channels at the Large Hadron Collider.  

PubMed

If neutral Higgs bosons are discovered at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), then an important subsequent issue will be the investigation of their CP nature. Higgs boson decays into tau lepton pairs are particularly suited in this respect. By analyzing the three charged pion decay modes of the tau leptons and taking expected measurement uncertainties at the LHC into account, we show that the CP properties of a Higgs boson can be pinned down with appropriately chosen observables, provided that sufficiently large event numbers will eventually be available.

Search for the associated production of a b quark and a neutral supersymmetric Higgs boson that decays into tau pairs.  

PubMed

We report results from a search for production of a neutral Higgs boson in association with a b quark. We search for Higgs decays to tau pairs with one tau subsequently decaying to a muon and the other to hadrons. The data correspond to 2.7 fb(-1) of pp collisions recorded by the D0 detector at square root(s)=1.96 TeV. The data are found to be consistent with background predictions. The result allows us to exclude a significant region of parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric model. PMID:20481981

Search for the Associated Production of a b Quark and a Neutral Supersymmetric Higgs Boson that Decays into {tau} Pairs  

SciTech Connect

We report results from a search for production of a neutral Higgs boson in association with a b quark. We search for Higgs decays to {tau} pairs with one {tau} subsequently decaying to a muon and the other to hadrons. The data correspond to 2.7 fb{sup -1} of pp collisions recorded by the D0 detector at {radical}(s)=1.96 TeV. The data are found to be consistent with background predictions. The result allows us to exclude a significant region of parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric model.

Search for a low mass Standard Model Higgs boson in the $\\tau-\\tau$ decay channel in $p\\bar{p}$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

We report on a search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying into pairs of {tau} leptons in p{bar p} collisions produced by the Tevatron at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. The analyzed data sample was recorded by the CDFII detector and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 6.0 fb{sup -1}. The search is performed in the final state with one {tau} decaying leptonically and the second one identified through its semi-hadronic decay. Since no significant excess is observed, a 95% credibility level upper limit on the production cross section times branching ratio to the {tau}{tau} final state is set for hypothetical Higgs boson masses between 100 and 150 GeV/c{sup 2}. For a Higgs boson of 120 GeV/c{sup 2} the observed (expected) limit is 14.6 (15.3) the predicted value.

The Search for B+ to Tau+ Nu(Tau) at BaBar  

SciTech Connect

We present a search for the decay B{sup +} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{nu}{sub {tau}} using 288 fb{sup -1} of data collected at the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II B-Factory. A sample of events with one reconstructed semileptonic B decay (B{sup -} {yields} D{sup o}{ell}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {ell}}X) is selected, and in the recoil a search for B{sup +} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{nu}{sub {tau}} signal is performed. The {tau} is identified in the following channels: {tau}{sup +} {yields} e{sup +}{nu}{sub e}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}}, {tau}{sup +} {yields} {mu}{sup +} {nu}{sub {mu}}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}}, {tau}{sup +} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup 0}{bar {nu}}{sub {tau}}. We measure a branching fraction of {Beta}(B{sup +} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{nu}{sub {tau}}) = 0.88{sub -0.67}{sup +0.68}(stat.) {+-} 0.11(syst.) x 10{sup -4} and extract an upper limit on the branching fraction, at the 90% confidence level, of {Beta}(B{sup +} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{nu}{sub {tau}}) < 1.8 x 10{sup -4}. We calculate the product of the B meson decay constant and |V{sub ub}| to be f{sub B} {center_dot} |V{sub ub}| = (7.0{sub -3.6}{sup +2.3}(stat.){sub -0.5}{sup +0.4}(syst.)) x 10{sup -4} GeV.

Confronting QCD with the experimental hadronic spectral functions from tau decay  

SciTech Connect

The (nonstrange) vector and axial-vector spectral functions extracted from {tau} decay by the ALEPH Collaboration are confronted with QCD in the framework of a finite energy sum rule involving a polynomial kernel tuned to suppress the region beyond the kinematical end point where there is no longer data. This effectively allows for a QCD finite energy sum rule analysis to be performed beyond the region of the existing data. Results show excellent agreement between data and perturbative QCD in the remarkably wide energy range s=3-10 GeV{sup 2}, leaving room for a dimension d=4 vacuum condensate consistent with values in the literature. A hypothetical dimension d=2 term in the operator product expansion is found to be extremely small, consistent with zero. Fixed order and contour improved perturbation theory are used, with both leading to similar results within errors. Full consistency is found between vector and axial-vector channel results.

Search for Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs in pp over collisions with the D0 detector.  

PubMed

We present a search for the production of neutral Higgs bosons varphi decaying into tau+tau - final states in pp over collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV. The data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately 1 fb(-1), were collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. Limits on the production cross section times branching ratio are set. The results are interpreted in the minimal supersymmetric standard model yielding limits that are the most stringent to date at hadron colliders. PMID:18764524

Review of recent results in tau physics  

SciTech Connect

The status of a variety of measurements involving the tau lepton is presented. These include the most recent measurements of the lifetime and branching ratios that can be used to make precision texts of lepton universality in the charged current; measurements of the polarization of the tau and its forward backward asymmetry in {ital Z}{sup 0} decays, which provide precision tests of neutral current universality and an accurate determination of the weak mixing angle; and recent measurements of hadronic decay branching fractions which identify the modes responsible for the historical missing decay mode problem of the tau. {copyright} {ital 1995} {ital American} {ital Institute} {ital of} {ital Physics}.

A measurement of the tau lifetime  

Microsoft Academic Search

The tau lepton lifetime is measured using four different methods with the DELPHI detector. Three measurements using one prong decays are combined, accounting for correlations, resulting in tautau=298 +\\/-7 (stat.)+\\/-4 (syst.) fs while the decay length distribution of three prong decays gives pipi=298+\\/-13 (stat)+\\/-(syst.) fs. The combined result is tautau=298+\\/-7 fs. The ratio of the Fermi coupling constant from tau

Search for a low-mass higgs boson in Upsilon(3S)-->gammaA(0), A(0)-->tau(+)tau(-) at BABAR.  

PubMed

We search for a light Higgs boson A0 in the radiative decay Upsilon(3S)-->gammaA(0), A(0)-->tau+tau-, tau+-->e+nu(e)nu(tau), or tau+-->mu+nu(mu)nu(tau). The data sample contains 122x10(6) Upsilon(3S) events recorded with the BABAR detector. We find no evidence for a narrow structure in the studied tau+tau- invariant mass region of 4.03tau+tau-)<10.10 GeV/c2. We exclude at the 90% confidence level (C.L.) a low-mass Higgs boson decaying to tau+tau- with a product branching fraction B(Upsilon(3S)-->gammaA(0))xB(A(0)-->tau+tau-)>(1.5-16)x10(-5) across the m(tau+tau-) range. We also set a 90% C.L. upper limit on the tau+tau- decay of the eta(b) at B(eta(b)-->tau+tau-)<8%. PMID:19905799

Potential synergy between tau aggregation inhibitors and tau chaperone modulators  

PubMed Central

Tau is a soluble, microtubule-associated protein known to aberrantly form amyloid-positive aggregates. This pathology is characteristic for more than 15 neuropathies, the most common of which is Alzheimer’s disease. Finding therapeutics to reverse or remove this non-native tau state is of great interest; however, at this time only one drug is entering phase III clinical trials for treating tauopathies. Generally, tau manipulation by therapeutics can either directly or indirectly alter tau aggregation and stability. Drugs that bind and change the conformation of tau itself are largely classified as aggregation inhibitors, while drugs that alter the activity of a tau-effector protein fall into several categories, such as kinase inhibitors, microtubule stabilizers, or chaperone modulators. Chaperone inhibitors that have proven effective in tau models include heat shock protein 90 inhibitors, heat shock protein 70 inhibitors and activators, as well as inducers of heat shock proteins. While many of these compounds can alter tau levels and/or aggregation states, it is possible that combining these approaches may produce the most optimal outcome. However, because many of these compounds have multiple off-target effects or poor blood–brain barrier permeability, the development of this synergistic therapeutic strategy presents significant challenges. This review will summarize many of the drugs that have been identified to alter tau biology, with special focus on therapeutics that prevent tau aggregation and regulate chaperone-mediated clearance of tau.

Search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying to tau pairs produced in association with a W or Z boson  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying to tau pairs is presented using data collected in 2011 and 2012 with the CMS detector at the LHC. The topologies studied represent three or four lepton final states, where the Higgs boson is produced in association with the leptonic decay of aWor Z boson, respectively. The analyses use collision data samples corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5 fb-1 collected at ?s = 7 TeV and 12 fb-1 of 8 TeV. Upper limits between 2.7 and 5.5 times the standard model prediction are established on the product of Higgs boson cross section and tau pair decay branching fraction for Higgs masses between 110 and 145 GeV.

Hypoglycemia induces tau hyperphosphorylation.  

PubMed

Cerebral hypoglycemia/hypometabolism is associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and is routinely used to assist clinical diagnosis of AD by brain imaging. However, whether cerebral hypoglycemia/hypometabolism contributes to the development of AD or is a response of reduced neuronal activity remains unclear. To investigate the causal relationship, we cultured the differentiated N2a neuroblastoma cells in glucose/pyruvate-deficient media (GDM). Shortly after the N2a cells cultured in the GDM, the mitochondria membrane potential was reduced and the AMP-activated-proteinkinase (AMPK), an energy sensor, was activated. Treatment of GDM not only increased the levels of tau phosphorylation at Ser(262) and Ser(396), but also increased the levels of active forms of GSK3? and GSK3?, two known kinases for tau phosphorylation, of the N2a cells. The levels of activated Akt, a mediator downstream to AMPK and upstream to GSK3?/?, were reduced by the GDM treatment. The effect of hypoglycemia was further examined in vivo by intracerebroventricular (icv) injection of streptozotocin (STZ) to the Wistar rats. STZ selectively injuries glucose transporter type 2-bearing cells which are primarily astrocytes in the rat brain, hence, interrupts glucose transportation from blood vessel to neuron. STZicv injection induced energy crisis in the brain regions surrounding the ventricles, as indicated by higher pAMPK levels in the hippocampus, but not cortex far away from the ventricles. STZ-icv treatment increased the levels of phosphorylated tau and activated GSK3?, but decreased the levels of activated Akt in the hippocampus. The hippocampus-dependent spatial learning and memory was impaired by the STZ-icv treatment. In conclusion, our works suggest that hypoglycemia enhances the AMPK-Akt-GSK3 pathway and leads to tau hyperphosphorylation. PMID:23036024

Bilocal expansion of the Borel amplitude and the hadronic tau decay width  

SciTech Connect

The singular part of the Borel transform of a QCD amplitude near the infrared renormalon can be expanded in terms of higher order Wilson coefficients of the operators associated with the renormalon. In this paper we observe that this expansion gives nontrivial constraints on the Borel amplitude that can be used to improve the accuracy of the ordinary perturbative expansion of the Borel amplitude. In particular, we consider the Borel transform of the Adler function and its expansion around the first infrared renormalon due to the gluon condensate. Using the next-to-leading order (NLO) Wilson coefficient of the gluon condensate operator, we obtain an exact constraint on the Borel amplitude at the first IR renormalon. We then extrapolate, using judiciously chosen conformal transformations and Pade{prime} approximants, the ordinary perturbative expansion of the Borel amplitude in such a way that this constraint is satisfied. This procedure allows us to predict the O({alpha}{sub s}{sup 4}) coefficient of the Adler function, which gives a result consistent with the estimate by Kataev and Starshenko using a completely different method. We then apply this improved Borel amplitude to the tau decay width and obtain the strong coupling constant {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub z}{sup 2})=0.1193{+-}0.0007{sub exp.}{+-}0.0010{sub EW+CKM}{+-}0.0009{sub meth.}{+-}0.0003{sub evol.}. We then compare this result with those of other resummation methods.

A measurement of the tau lifetime  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The tau lepton lifetime is measured using four different methods with the DELPHI detector. Three measurements using one prong decays are combined, accounting for correlations, resulting in ??=298 +/-7 (stat.)+/-4 (syst.) fs while the decay length distribution of three prong decays gives ??=298+/-13 (stat)+/-(syst.) fs. The combined result is ??=298+/-7 fs. The ratio of the Fermi coupling constant from tau decay relative to that from muon decay is found to be 0.985+/-0.013, compatible with lepton universality.

From tau phosphorylation to tau aggregation: what about neuronal death?  

PubMed

Tau pathology is characterized by intracellular aggregates of abnormally and hyperphosphorylated tau proteins. It is encountered in many neurodegenerative disorders, but also in aging. These neurodegenerative disorders are referred to as tauopathies. Comparative biochemistry of the tau aggregates shows that they differ in both tau isoform phosphorylation and content, which enables a molecular classification of tauopathies. In conditions of dementia, NFD (neurofibrillary degeneration) severity is correlated to cognitive impairment and is often considered as neuronal death. Using tau animal models, analysis of the kinetics of tau phosphorylation, aggregation and neuronal death in parallel to electrophysiological and behavioural parameters indicates a disconnection between cognition deficits and neuronal cell death. Tau phosphorylation and aggregation are early events followed by cognitive impairment. Neuronal death is not observed before the oldest ages. A sequence of events may be the formation of toxic phosphorylated tau species, their aggregation, the formation of neurofibrillary tangles (from pre-tangles to ghost tangles) and finally neuronal cell death. This sequence will last from 15 to 25 years and one can ask whether the aggregation of toxic phosphorylated tau species is a protection against cell death. Apoptosis takes 24 h, but NFD lasts for 24 years to finally kill the neuron or rather to protect it for more than 20 years. Altogether, these data suggest that NFD is a transient state before neuronal death and that therapeutic interventions are possible at that stage. PMID:20658986

We report on analyses of tau lepton decays {tau}{sup -}{yields}{eta}K{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}} and {tau}{sup -}{yields}{eta}{pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}}, with {eta}{yields}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}, using 470 fb{sup -1} of data from the BABAR experiment at PEP-II, collected at center-of-mass energies at and near the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance. We measure the branching fraction for the {tau}{sup -}{yields}{eta}K{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}} decay mode, B({tau}{sup -}{yields}{eta}K{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}})=(1.42{+-}0.11(stat){+-}0.07(syst))x10{sup -4}, and report a 95% confidence level upper limit for the second-class current process {tau}{sup -}{yields}{eta}{pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}}, B({tau}{sup -}{yields}{eta}{pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}})<9.9x10{sup -5}.

Measurement of the Tau Lepton Polarisation at LEP2  

Microsoft Academic Search

A first measurement of the average polarisation P_tau of tau leptons produced in e+e- annihilation at energies significantly above the Z resonance is presented. The polarisation is determined from the kinematic spectra of tau hadronic decays. The measured value P_tau = -0.164 +\\/- 0.125 is consistent with the Standard Model prediction for the mean LEP energy of 197 GeV.

UX Tau A  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

This is an artist's rendition of the one-million-year-old star system called UX Tau A, located approximately 450 light-years away. Observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope showed a gap in the dusty planet-forming disk swirling around the system's central sun-like star.

Spitzer saw a gap in UX Tau A's disk that extends from 0.2 to 56 astronomical units (an astronomical unit is the distance between the sun and Earth). The gap extends from the equivalent of Mercury to Pluto in our solar system, and is sandwiched between thick inner and outer disks on either side. Astronomers suspect that the gap was carved out by one or more forming planets.

Such dusty disks are where planets are thought to be born. Dust grains clump together like snowballs to form larger rocks, and then the bigger rocks collide to form the cores of planets. When rocks revolve around their central star, they act like cosmic vacuum cleaners, picking up all the gas and dust in their path and creating gaps.

Although gaps have been detected in disks swirling around young stars before, UX Tau A is special because the gap is sandwiched between two thick disks of dust. An inner thick dusty disk hugs the central star, then, moving outward, there is a gap, followed by another thick doughnut-shaped disk. Other systems with gaps contain very little to no dust near the central star. In other words, those gaps are more like big holes in the centers of disks.

Some scientists suspect that these holes could have been carved out by a process called photoevaporation. Photoevaporation occurs when radiation from the central star heats up the gas and dust around it to the point where it evaporates away. The fact that there is thick disk swirling extremely close to UX Tau A's central star rules out the photoevaporation scenario. If photoevaporation from the star played a role, then large amounts of dust would not be floating so close to the star.

We present measurements of B{sup +{yields}}D*{sup 0{tau}+{nu}}{sub {tau}}and B{sup +{yields}}D{sup 0{tau}+{nu}}{sub {tau}}decays in a data sample of 657x10{sup 6} BB pairs collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e{sup +}e{sup -} collider. We find 446{sub -56}{sup +58} B{sup +{yields}}D*{sup 0{tau}+{nu}}{sub {tau}}events with a significance of 8.1 standard deviations, and 146{sub -41}{sup +42} B{sup +{yields}}D{sup 0{tau}+{nu}}{sub {tau}}events with a significance of 3.5 standard deviations. The latter signal provides the first evidence for this decay mode. The measured branching fractions are B(B{sup +{yields}}D*{sup 0{tau}+{nu}}{sub {tau}})=(2.12{sub -0.27}{sup +0.28}(stat){+-}0.29(syst))% and B(B{sup +{yields}}D{sup 0{tau}+{nu}}{sub {tau}})=(0.77{+-}0.22(stat){+-}0.12(syst))%.

Study of top quark production and decays involving a tau lepton at CDF and limits on a charged Higgs boson contribution  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present an analysis of top-antitop quark production and decay into a tau lepton, tau neutrino, and bottom quark using data from 9 fb-1 of integrated luminosity at the Collider Detector at Fermilab. Dilepton events, where one lepton is an energetic electron or muon and the other a hadronically decaying tau lepton, originating from proton-antiproton collisions at ?s =1.96 TeV, are used. A top-antitop quark production cross section of 8.1±2.1 pb is measured, assuming standard-model top quark decays. By separately identifying for the first time the single-tau and the ditau components, we measure the branching fraction of the top quark into the tau lepton, tau neutrino, and bottom quark to be (9.6±2.8)%. The branching fraction of top quark decays into a charged Higgs boson and a bottom quark, which would imply violation of lepton universality, is limited to be less than 5.9% at a 95% confidence level [for B(H-???¯)=1].

Test of the exponential decay law at short decay times using tau leptons  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Quantum mechanics predicts an exponential distribution for the decay time of massive particles. However, deviations are expected for decay times shorter than about 10 -13 s in models conjecturing the existence of hidden variables. Following a recent proposal, the decay length distribution of 5843 ? leptons decaying into 3 charged particles was analyzed in search of such a deviation. The deviation from an exponential distribution with respect to the number of decays present within the exponential form, expressed as the relative weight of an excess at zero decay length, was measured to be 1.1%±1.4%±3.5%. This result is consistent with zero deviation and leads to an upper limit of 8.5% and a lower limit of -6.3% at the 95% confidence level.

Bimolecular Fluorescence Complementation; Lighting-Up Tau-Tau Interaction in Living Cells  

PubMed Central

Abnormal tau aggregation is a pathological hallmark of many neurodegenerative disorders and it is becoming apparent that soluble tau aggregates play a key role in neurodegeneration and memory impairment. Despite this pathological importance, there is currently no single method that allows monitoring soluble tau species in living cells. In this regard, we developed a cell-based sensor that visualizes tau self-assembly. By introducing bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) technique to tau, we were able to achieve spatial and temporal resolution of tau-tau interactions in a range of states, from soluble dimers to large aggregates. Under basal conditions, tau-BiFC cells exhibited little fluorescence intensity, implying that the majority of tau molecules exist as monomers. Upon chemically induced tau hyperphosphorylation, BiFC fluorescence greatly increased, indicating an increased level of tau-tau interactions. As an indicator of tau assembly, our BiFC sensor would be a useful tool for investigating tau pathology.

Neurofibrillary tangle-like tau pathology induced by synthetic tau fibrils in primary neurons over-expressing mutant tau.  

PubMed

Increasing evidence demonstrates the transmissibility of fibrillar species of tau protein, but this has never been directly tested in neurons, the cell type most affected by formation of tau inclusions in neurodegenerative tauopathies. Here we show that synthetic tau fibrils made from recombinant protein not only time-dependently recruit normal tau into neurofibrillary tangle-like insoluble aggregates in primary hippocampal neurons over-expressing human tau, but also induce neuritic tau pathology in non-transgenic neurons. This study provides highly compelling support for the protein-only hypothesis of pathological tau transmission in primary neurons and describes a useful neuronal model for studying the pathogenesis of tauopathies.

Calorimeter Performance for Tau Reconstruction and Identification at ATLAS  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The ATLAS physics program involving tau final states ranges from Standard Model measurements involving W, Z, and top pair production, to searches for the Higgs, Supersymmetry and other beyond the Standard Model signatures. The ATLAS calorimeter plays a crucial role in the reconstruction and identification of hadronically decaying tau leptons in ATLAS. This proceeding discusses the role of the calorimeter in reconstructing the tau energy, as well as methods to measure the systematic uncertainties on the tau energy scale. The calorimeter is further a key component in building identification variables used to differentiate tau candidates from hadronic jets. The role of these variables is presented, and the use of variables in high luminosity environments is also discussed. A brief overview of the impact of the tau energy scale and identification efficiency uncertainties in searches for new physics with tau-based signatures is also given.

Extracellular Tau Levels Are Influenced by Variability in Tau That Is Associated with Tauopathies*  

PubMed Central

Tauopathies are a class of neurodegenerative diseases marked by intracellular aggregates of hyperphosphorylated Tau. These diseases may occur by sporadic mechanisms in which genetic variants represent risk factors for disease, as is the case in Alzheimer disease (AD). In AD, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of soluble Tau/pTau-181 are higher in cases compared with controls. A subset of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) cases occur by a familial mechanism in which MAPT, the gene that encodes Tau, mutations are dominantly inherited. In symptomatic FTD patients expressing a MAPT mutation, CSF Tau levels are slightly elevated but are significantly lower than in AD patients. We sought to model CSF Tau changes by measuring extracellular Tau in cultured cells. Full-length, monomeric extracellular total Tau and pTau-181 were detectable in human neuroblastoma cells expressing endogenous Tau, in human non-neuronal cells overexpressing wild-type Tau, and in mouse cortical neurons. Tau isoforms influence the rate of Tau release, whereby the N terminus (exons 2/3) and microtubule binding repeat length contribute to Tau release from the cell. Compared with cells overexpressing wild-type Tau, cells overexpressing FTD-associated MAPT mutations produce significantly less extracellular total Tau without altering intracellular total Tau levels. This study demonstrates that cells actively release Tau in the absence of disease or toxicity, and Tau release is modified by changes in the Tau protein that are associated with tauopathies.

Boronate-tau mediated uptake in neurons.  

PubMed

We modified tau protein with boronic acid to facilitate its delivery into non neural or neural cultured cells lacking tau protein. Our results indicate that the incorporated tau promotes the formation of cytoplasmic extensions in non-neuronal cells, as well as the appearance of neurites in cultured tau knockout hippocampal neurons. In addition, boronated tau is incorporated into hippocampal neurons of tau knockout mice after intracranial injection in vivo. These findings describe a novel method to deliver exogenous tau protein into cells. PMID:24366920

Therapeutic strategies for tau mediated neurodegeneration  

PubMed Central

Based on the amyloid hypothesis, controlling ?-amyloid protein (A?) accumulation is supposed to suppress downstream pathological events, tau accumulation, neurodegeneration and cognitive decline. However, in recent clinical trials, A? removal or reducing A? production has shown limited efficacy. Moreover, while active immunisation with A? resulted in the clearance of A?, it did not prevent tau pathology or neurodegeneration. This prompts the concern that it might be too late to employ A? targeting therapies once tau mediated neurodegeneration has occurred. Therefore, it is timely and very important to develop tau directed therapies. The pathomechanisms of tau mediated neurodegeneration are unclear but hyperphosphorylation, oligomerisation, fibrillisation and propagation of tau pathology have been proposed as the likely pathological processes that induce loss of function or gain of toxic function of tau, causing neurodegeneration. Here we review the strategies for tau directed treatments based on recent progress in research on tau and our understanding of the pathomechanisms of tau mediated neurodegeneration.

We report results from a search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs produced in association with a b-quark in 1.6 fb{sup -1} of data taken from June 2006 to March 2008 with the D0 detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The final state includes a muon, hadronically decaying tau, and jet identified as coming from a b-quark. We set cross section times branching ratio limits on production of such neutral Higgs bosons {phi} in the mass range from 90 GeV to 160 GeV. Exclusion limits are set at the 95% Confidence Level for several supersymmetric scenarios.

Tau Protein and Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis  

PubMed Central

Tau protein is a microtubule-associated protein found in the axonal compartment that stabilizes neuronal microtubules under normal physiological conditions. Tau metabolism has attracted much attention because of its role in neurodegenerative disorders called tauopathies, mainly Alzheimer disease. Here, we review recent findings suggesting that axonal outgrowth in subgranular zone during adult hippocampal neurogenesis requires a dynamic microtubule network and tau protein facilitates to maintain that dynamic cytoskeleton. Those functions are carried out in part by tau isoform with only three microtubule-binding domains (without exon 10) and by presence of hyperphosphorylated tau forms. Thus, tau is a good marker and a valuable tool to study new axons in adult neurogenesis.

The dipion mass spectrum in e+e- annihilation and tau decay: Isospin symmetry breaking effects from the (rho, omega, phi) mixing  

SciTech Connect

A way to explain the puzzling difference between the pion form factor as measured in e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilations and in {tau} decays is discussed. We show that isospin symmetry breaking, beside the already identified effects, produces also a full mixing between the {rho}{sup 0}, {omega} and {phi} mesons which generates an isospin 0 component inside the {rho}{sup 0} meson. This effect, not accounted for in current treatments of the problem, seems able to account for the apparent mismatch between e{sup +}e{sup -} and {tau} data below the {phi} mass.

First measurement of sigma (p anti-p ---> Z) . Br (Z ---> tau tau) at s**(1/2) = 1.96- TeV  

SciTech Connect

The authors present a measurement of the cross section for Z production times the branching fraction to {tau} leptons, {sigma} {center_dot} Br(Z {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}), in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV in the channel in which one {tau} decays into {mu}{nu}{sub {mu}}{nu}{sub {tau}}, and the other into hadrons + {nu}{sub {tau}} or e{nu}{sub e}{nu}{sub {tau}}. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 226 pb{sup -1} collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The final sample contains 2008 candidate events with an estimated background of 55%. From this they obtain {sigma} {center_dot} Br(Z {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}) = 237 {+-} 15(stat) {+-} 18(sys) {+-} 15(lum) pb, in agreement with the standard model prediction.

Search for a low-mass scalar Higgs boson decaying to a tau pair in single-photon decays of ?(1S)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We search for a low-mass scalar CP-odd Higgs boson, A0, produced in the radiative decay of the upsilon resonance and decaying into a ?+?- pair: ?(1S)??A0. The production of ?(1S) mesons is tagged by ?(2S)??+?-?(1S) transitions, using a sample of (98.3±0.9)×106 ?(2S) mesons collected by the BABAR detector. We find no evidence for a Higgs boson in the mass range 3.5?mA0?9.2GeV, and combine these results with our previous search for the tau decays of the light Higgs in radiative ?(3S) decays, setting limits on the coupling of A0 to the bb¯ quarks in the range 0.09-1.9. Our measurements improve the constraints on the parameters of the next-to-minimal-supersymmetric Standard Model and similar theories with low-mass scalar degrees of freedom.

Tau Splicing and the Intricacies of Dementia  

PubMed Central

Tau is a microtubule associated protein that fulfills several functions critical for neuronal formation and health. Tau discharges its functions by producing multiple isoforms via regulated alternative splicing. These isoforms modulate tau function in normal brain by altering the domains of the protein, thereby influencing its localization, conformation and post-translational modifications and hence its availability and affinity for microtubules and other ligands. Disturbances in tau expression result in disruption of the neuronal cytoskeleton and formation of tau structures (neurofibrillary tangles) found in brains of dementia sufferers. More specifically, aberrations in tau splicing regulation directly cause several neurodegenerative diseases which lead to dementia. In this review, I present our cumulative knowledge of tau splicing regulation in connection with neurodegeneration and also briefly go over the still-extensive list of questions that are connected to tau (dys)function.

Estimate of the spectral classes of the T Tau type stars HL Tau and DG Tau  

SciTech Connect

Estimates have been made of the fundamental physical characteristics of two stars in the stage of evolution to the main sequence. The revised spectral classification for the star HL Tau has made it possible to achieve agreement with the published physical characteristics. The results of the estimates by two independent methods of the fundamental physical characteristics of the two stars in the stage of evolution to the main sequence have given consistent results. For the star HL Tau the revised spectral classification has made it possible to establish agreement for the published physical characteristics of the star. It is probable that HL Tau is a star of early spectral class and of the Ae/Be Herbig type.

Tau protein is a predominantly neuronal microtubule-associated protein that is enriched in axons and is capable of promoting microtubule assembly and stabilization. In the present article we review some of the key experiments directed to obtain insights about tau protein function in developing neurons. Aspects related to whether or not tau has essential, unique, or complementary functions during axonal formation

Sensitive quantitative assays for tau and phospho-tau in transgenic mouse models  

PubMed Central

Transgenic mouse models have been an invaluable resource in elucidating the complex roles of A? and tau in Alzheimer’s disease. While many laboratories rely on qualitative or semi-quantitative techniques when investigating tau pathology, we have developed four Low-Tau Sandwich ELISAs that quantitatively assess different epitopes of tau relevant to Alzheimer’s disease: total tau, pSer-202, pThr-231, pSer-396/404. In this study, after comparing our assays to commercially available ELISAs, we demonstrate our assays high specificity and quantitative capabilities using brain homogenates from tau transgenic mice, htau, JNPL3, tau KO mice. All four ELISAs show excellent specificity for mouse and human tau, with no reactivity to tau KO animals. An age dependent increase of serum tau in both tau transgenic models was also seen. Taken together, these assays are valuable methods to quantify tau and phospho-tau levels in transgenic animals, by examining tau levels in brain and measuring tau as a potential serum biomarker.

The branching fraction of the {tau}{sup -} {yields} 3h{sup -} 2h{sup +} {nu}{sub {tau}} decay (h = {pi}, K) is measured with the BABAR detector to be (8.56 {+-} 0.05 {+-} 0.42) x 10{sup -4}, where the first error is statistical and the second systematic. The observed structure of this decay is significantly different from the phase space prediction, with the {rho} resonance playing a strong role. The decay {tau}{sup -} {yields} f{sub 1}(1285){pi}{sup -}{nu}{sub {tau}}, with the f{sub 1}(1285) meson decaying to four charged pions, is observed and the branching fraction is measured to be (3.9 {+-} 0.7 {+-} 0.5) x 10{sup -4}.

Measurement of the Z to tau tau cross section with the ATLAS detector  

SciTech Connect

The Z {yields} {tau}{tau} cross section is measured with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC in four different final states determined by the decay modes of the {tau} leptons: muon-hadron, electron-hadron, electron-muon, and muon-muon. The analysis is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb{sup -1}, at a proton-proton center-of-mass energy of {radical}s = 7 TeV. Cross sections are measured separately for each final state in fiducial regions of high detector acceptance, as well as in the full phase space, over the mass region 66-116 GeV. The individual cross sections are combined and the product of the total Z production cross section and Z {yields} {tau}{tau} branching fraction is measured to be 0.97 {+-} 0.07(stat) {+-} 0.06(syst) {+-} 0.03(lumi) nb, in agreement with next-to-next-to-leading order calculations.

Bimolecular fluorescence complementation; lighting-up tau-tau interaction in living cells.  

PubMed

Abnormal tau aggregation is a pathological hallmark of many neurodegenerative disorders and it is becoming apparent that soluble tau aggregates play a key role in neurodegeneration and memory impairment. Despite this pathological importance, there is currently no single method that allows monitoring soluble tau species in living cells. In this regard, we developed a cell-based sensor that visualizes tau self-assembly. By introducing bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) technique to tau, we were able to achieve spatial and temporal resolution of tau-tau interactions in a range of states, from soluble dimers to large aggregates. Under basal conditions, tau-BiFC cells exhibited little fluorescence intensity, implying that the majority of tau molecules exist as monomers. Upon chemically induced tau hyperphosphorylation, BiFC fluorescence greatly increased, indicating an increased level of tau-tau interactions. As an indicator of tau assembly, our BiFC sensor would be a useful tool for investigating tau pathology. PMID:24312574

The mass of the {tau} lepton has been measured at the Beijing Electron Positron Collider using the Beijing Spectrometer. A search near threshold for e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup {minus}} was performed. Candidate events were identified by requiring that one {tau} decay via {tau} {yields} e{nu}{bar {nu}}, and the other via {tau} {yields} {mu}{nu}{bar {nu}}. The mass value, obtained from a fit to the energy dependence of the {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup {minus}} cross section, is m{sub {tau}} = 1776.9{sub -0.5}{sup +0.4} {plus_minus} 0.2 MeV.

Voyager observations of Zeta Tau  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Two Voyager observations of Zeta Tau, a well-known Be/shell star of spectral type B1 IVe and vsin(i) = 220 km/s, separated by 503 days are presented and discussed. The observations show that in the spectral region shortward of Lyman-alpha, the 950-1150 A flux increased by about 40 percent, while in the region longward of 1300 A the flux increased by about 30 percent. Changes in features at 975 A and at 1020 A also appear. The observed change in the continuum flux is probably associated with a change in the effective temperature of the underlying B star, though change in the ubiquitous Fe II lines cannot be ruled out as the cause. The line variations are consistent with IUE spectra of Zeta Tau taken during the same time period.

Search for Higgs Bosons Predicted in Two-Higgs-Doublet Models via Decays to Tau Lepton Pairs in 1.96 TeV pp Collisions  

SciTech Connect

We present the results of a search for Higgs bosons predicted in two-Higgs-doublet models, in the case where the Higgs bosons decay to tau lepton pairs, using 1.8 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity of pp collisions recorded by the CDF II experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. Studying the mass distribution in events where one or both tau leptons decay leptonically, no evidence for a Higgs boson signal is observed. The result is used to infer exclusion limits in the two-dimensional space of tanbeta versus m{sub A} (the ratio of the vacuum expectation values of the two Higgs doublets and the mass of the pseudoscalar boson, respectively).

Search for squark production in events with jets, hadronically decaying tau leptons and missing transverse energy at ?{s}=1.96 TeV  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A search for supersymmetric partners of quarks is performed in the topology of multijet events accompanied by at least one tau lepton decaying hadronically and large missing transverse energy. Approximately 1 fb -1 of ppbar collision data from the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV recorded by the DØ detector is analyzed. Results are combined with the previously published DØ inclusive search for squarks and gluinos. No evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model is found and lower limits on the squark mass up to 410 GeV are derived in the framework of minimal supergravity with tan?=15, A=-2m and ?<0, in the region where decays to tau leptons dominate. Gaugino masses m are excluded up to 172 GeV.

Detecting Tau Neutrino Oscillations at EeV Energies  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is suggested that a large scale UHE cosmic ray detector of the fluorescence type (Fly's Eye style as implemented in Hi-Res or the Auger Project, or from space as with OWL or Airwatch) may be able to observe a unique signature due to tau neutrinos. This signature comes about due to the initial charged current tau neutrino interaction producing a large shower, flying some distance, and then decaying in a second larger shower with typically twice the energy. Near horizontally incoming tau neutrinos provide the best change for this observation, where long flight paths in the atmosphere serve to discriminate between tau events, strongly interacting showers, and showers generated by either electron or muon neutrino interactions. Tau neutrinos are generally expected at the energies under study for resolving the SHE cosmic ray anomaly, because many suggested processes which produce the observed cosmic rays beyond the G-Z-K cutoff also produce copious neutrinos. We now have good evidence that the muon neutrino oscillates, and probably the electron neutrino as well. Despite the probable lack of source production of tau neutrinos, generation of tau neutrinos via oscillations, given the long flight distances, seems likely (though not inescapable, as for example if the oscillations presently seen are to sterile neutrinos). We present estimates of detection rates which demonstrate that if the tau neutrinos are present in the cosmic ray beam at a substantial fraction of the total, then experiments may well detect them.

The lepton flavor violating decay {tau}{sup {+-}} {yields} Micro-Sign {sup {+-}} Micro-Sign {sup {+-}} Micro-Sign {sup Minus-Or-Plus-Sign} at LHCb  

SciTech Connect

The possibility of improving the limit on the branching fraction of the lepton flavor violating decay {tau}{sup {+-}} {yields} Micro-Sign {sup {+-}} Micro-Sign {sup {+-}} Micro-Sign {sup Minus-Or-Plus-Sign} at LHCb is discussed. It is shown that a simple, cut-based analysis is sufficient to improve the upper limit on this branching fraction within the lifetime of LHCb.

Tau Protein Diffuses along the Microtubule Lattice*  

PubMed Central

Current models for the intracellular transport of Tau protein suggest motor protein-dependent co-transport with microtubule fragments and diffusion of Tau in the cytoplasm, whereas Tau is believed to be stationary while bound to microtubules and in equilibrium with free diffusion in the cytosol. Observations that members of the microtubule-dependent kinesin family show Brownian motion along microtubules led us to hypothesize that diffusion along microtubules could also be relevant in the case of Tau. We used single-molecule total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy to probe for diffusion of individual fluorescently labeled Tau molecules along microtubules. This allowed us to avoid the problem that microtubule-dependent diffusion could be masked by excess of labeled Tau in solution that might occur in in vivo overexpression experiments. We found that approximately half of the individually detected Tau molecules moved bidirectionally along microtubules over distances up to several micrometers. Diffusion parameters such as diffusion coefficient, interaction time, and scanned microtubule length did not change with Tau concentration. Tau binding and diffusion along the microtubule lattice, however, were sensitive to ionic strength and pH and drastically reduced upon enzymatic removal of the negatively charged C termini of tubulin. We propose one-dimensional Tau diffusion guided by the microtubule lattice as one possible additional mechanism for Tau distribution. By such one-dimensional microtubule lattice diffusion, Tau could be guided to both microtubule ends, i.e. the sites where Tau is needed during microtubule polymerization, independently of directed motor-dependent transport. This could be important in conditions where active transport along microtubules might be compromised.

Improved measurement of absolute branching fraction of D{sub s}{sup +}{yields}{tau}{sup +}{nu}{sub {tau}}  

SciTech Connect

We have studied the leptonic decay D{sub s}{sup +}{yields}{tau}{sup +}{nu}{sub {tau}}, via the decay channel {tau}{sup +}{yields}e{sup +}{nu}{sub e}{nu}{sub {tau}}, using a sample of tagged D{sub s}{sup +} decays collected near the D{sub s}*{sup {+-}}D{sub s}{sup {+-}} peak production energy in e{sup +}e{sup -} collisions with the CLEO-c detector. We obtain B(D{sub s}{sup +}{yields}{tau}{sup +}{nu}{sub {tau}})=(5.30{+-}0.47{+-}0.22)% and determine the decay constant f{sub D{sub s}}=(252.5{+-}11.1{+-}5.2) MeV, where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second are systematic.

Tau oligomers as potential targets for early diagnosis of tauopathy.  

PubMed

The discovery of tau mutations in frontotemporal dementia has been a key event in neurodegenerative disease research. The rTg4510 mouse line expressing human tau with P301L FTDP-17-tau mutation has been established to understand the role of tau in neurodegeneration. Our histological analyses with tau antibodies and fluorescent tau ligands on rTg4510 mice revealed that tau oligomer formation was distinct from tangle formation. While in vivo imaging of mature tangles is now available, imaging biomarkers for tau oligomers would be useful for clarifying their roles in neurotoxicity and for diagnosing early-stage tau pathology.

Physiological release of endogenous tau is stimulated by neuronal activity  

PubMed Central

Propagation of tau pathology is linked with progressive neurodegeneration, but the mechanism underlying trans-synaptic spread of tau is unknown. We show that stimulation of neuronal activity, or AMPA receptor activation, induces tau release from healthy, mature cortical neurons. Notably, phosphorylation of extracellular tau appears reduced in comparison with intracellular tau. We also find that AMPA-induced release of tau is calcium-dependent. Blocking pre-synaptic vesicle release by tetanus toxin and inhibiting neuronal activity with tetrodotoxin both significantly impair AMPA-mediated tau release. Tau secretion is therefore a regulatable process, dysregulation of which could lead to the spread of tau pathology in disease.

A measurement of the tau Michel parameters at SLD  

SciTech Connect

This thesis presents a measurement of the tau Michel parameters. This measurement utilizes the highly polarized SLC electron beam to extract these quantities directly from the measured tau decay spectra using the 1993--95 SLD sample of 4,528 tau pair events. The results are {rho}{sup e} = 0.71 {+-} 0.14 {+-} 0.05, {xi}{sup e} = 1.16 {+-} 0.52 {+-} 0.06, and ({xi}{delta}){sup e} = 0.85 {+-} 0.43 {+-} 0.08 for tau decays to electrons and {rho}{sup {mu}} = 0.54 {+-} 0.28 {sup {minus}} 0.14, {eta}{sup {mu}} = {minus}0.59 {+-} 0.82 {+-} 0.45, {xi}{sup {mu}} = 0.75 {+-} 0.50 {+-} 0.14, and ({xi}{delta}){sup {mu}} = 0.82 {+-} 0.32 {+-} 0.07 for tau decays to muons. Combining all leptonic tau decays gives {rho} = 0.72 {+-} 0.09 {+-} 0.03, {xi} = 1.05 {+-} 0.35 {+-} 0.04, and {Xi}{delta} = 0.88 {+-} 0.27 {+-} 0.04. These results agree well with the current world average and the Standard Model.

Measurement of the tau polarisation at the Z resonance  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Using 18.8 pb-1 of data collected in 1990 and 1991, ALEPH has measured the tau polarisation in the decay modes ?? ev bar v, ??? v bar v, ????, ???? and ?? a 1?, using both the individual tau decay kinematics and the event acollinearity. The measurement of the tau polarisation as a function of the production polar angle yields the two parameters A ? and A e , where A l =2 g {/v l } g {/A l }/( g {/v l })2+( g {/A l })2] The results A ?=0.143±0.023 and A e =0.120±0.026 are consistent with the hypothesis of electron-tau universality. Assuming universality yields a measurement of the effective weak mixing angle sin2?{/w eff}=0.2332±0.0022.

Searches for violation of lepton flavour and baryon number in tau lepton decays at LHCb  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Searches for the lepton flavour violating decay ?-??-?+?- and the lepton flavour and baryon number violating decays ?-?pbar?+?- and ?-?p?-?- have been carried out using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.0 fb, taken by the LHCb experiment at ?{s}=7 TeV. No evidence has been found for any signal, and limits have been set at 90% confidence level on the branching fractions: B(?-??-?+?-)<8.0×10-8, B(?-?pbar?+?-)<3.3×10-7 and B(?-?p?-?-)<4.4×10-7. The results for the ?-?pbar?+?- and ?-?p?-?- decay modes represent the first direct experimental limits on these channels.

Immunological characterization of epitopes on tau of Alzheimer's type and chemically modified tau  

Microsoft Academic Search

The microtubule-associated protein tau is the main structural component of paired helical filaments (PHFs), which in turn are one of the major aberrant polymers found in Alzheimer's disease. Immunological studies were carried out using site-directed monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies that recognize tubulin binding epitopes on tau, to further understand the mechanisms of tau self-association into PHFs. Tau protein was subjected

Search for neutral Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs in pp[over ] collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV.  

PubMed

A search for the production of neutral Higgs bosons Phi decaying into tau(+)tau(-) final states in pp[over ] collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV is presented. The data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of approximately 325 pb(-1), were collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. Since no excess compared to the expectation from standard model processes is found, limits on the production cross section times branching ratio are set. The results are combined with those obtained from the D0 search for Phib(b[over ])-->bb[over ]b(b[over ]) and are interpreted in the minimal supersymmetric standard model. PMID:17025951

Measurement of exclusive branching fractions of hadronic one-prong tau decays  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We have measured the branching fractions for the hadronic ? decays, ? ? {?}/{Kn?° } ? (0? n ?3), with the L3 detector at LEP. Multiphoton final states are analyzed using the fine-grained, high-resolution electromagnetic calorimeter. The decay channels are identified using a neural network method. The results are: BR(? ? {?}/{K? }) = (11.82 ± 0.26 ± 0.43) %, BR(? ? {?}/{K?° } ?) = (25.05 ± 0.35 ± 0.50) %, BR(? ? {?}/{K2?° } ?) = (8.88 ± 0.37 ± 0.42) %, BR(? ? {?}/{K3?? } ?) = (1.70 ± 0.24 ± 0.38) %, where the first error quoted is statistical, the second systematic.

TAUOLA for simulation of tau decay and production: perspectives for precision low energy and LHC applications  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The status of Monte Carlo system for the simulation of ?-lepton production and decay in high-energy accelerator experiments is reviewed. Since the previous ?-lepton conference in 2008 some practical modifications have been introduced: (i) For the TAUOLA Monte Carlo generator of ?-lepton decays, automated and simultaneous use of many versions of form-factors for the calculation of optional weights for fits was developed and checked to work in the Belle and BaBar software environment. Work on alternative parametrizations of hadronic decays is advanced. (ii) the TAUOLA universal interface based on HepMC (the C++ event record) is now public. A similar interface for PHOTOS is now also public. (iii) Extension of the PHOTOS Monte Carlo for QED bremsstrahlung in decays featuring kernels based on complete first order matrix element are gradually becoming widely available thanks to properties of the new, HepMC based interface. (iv) Systematic tests of the programs with the help of MC-TESTER are now available for FORTRAN and C++ users. The results presented here illustrate the status of the projects performed in collaboration with Nadia Davidson, Piotr Golonka, Gizo Nanava, Tomasz Przedzi?ski, Olga Shekhovtsova, El?bieta Richter-W?as, Pablo Roig, Qingjun Xu and others.

RPV SUSY effects in $\\tau^- \\to e^-(\\mu^-) K\\bar{K}$ decays  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper, we investigate ? - -> e-(? ^-) K\\bar {K}(K\\bar {K} = K+K^-, K0\\bar {K}^0) decays in the framework of the RPV SUSY model. We discuss the tree-level contribution of the sparticles ˜ ? and ˜ u to these decay branching ratios. In the two channels, the ˜ ? -mediated channel is more sensitive to the parameter product \\vert? '*i22? i31(2)\\vert than the ˜ u-mediated channel to \\vert? '*1(2)j2? '3j2\\vert. And the parameter product \\vert? '*i22? i31(2)]\\vert is severely constrained to the order of {O}(10-5) by the experiment data with m˜ ? = 100 GeV, which is one order of magnitude more stringent than before. In the calculation of hadronic matrix elements, the resonant effects are large than those of nonresonant terms. Especially, the resonant contribution of scalar meson f(980) plays a dominate role in ˜ ? -mediated channel.

Methylene Blue Reduced Abnormal Tau Accumulation in P301L Tau Transgenic Mice  

PubMed Central

In neurodegenerative disorders, abnormally hyperphosphorylated and aggregated tau accumulates intracellularly, a mechanism which is thought to induce neuronal cell death. Methylene blue, a type of phenothiazine, has been reported to inhibit tau aggregation in vitro. However, the effect of methylene blue in vivo has remained unknown. Therefore, we examined whether methylene blue suppresses abnormal tau accumulation using P301L tau transgenic mice. At 8 to 11 months of age, these mice were orally administered methylene blue for 5 months. Subsequent results of Western blotting analysis revealed that this agent reduced detergent-insoluble phospho-tau. Methylene blue may have potential as a drug candidate for the treatment of tauopathy.

Specific binding of intravenous immunoglobulin products to tau peptide fragments.  

PubMed

The effects of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) products are being evaluated in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. IVIG contains antibodies to tau protein, the main constituent of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs). Tau has microtubule binding domain (MBD) repeats which are thought to be necessary for its aggregation, a key process in NFT formation. Tau's N-terminal region may also contribute to its aggregation and to the neurotoxicity of its soluble oligomers. This study examined the specific binding of IVIG products Gammagard, Gamunex, and Flebogamma to a tau N-terminal fragment (tau 45-73), tau's four MBD repeat sequences (tau 244-274, 275-305, 306-336, and 337-368), and a tau C-terminal fragment (tau 422-441). Mean antibody levels to tau 45-73 and tau 422-441 were significantly higher in Gamunex than in Gammagard and Flebogamma, while there were no significant differences between IVIG products for antibody concentrations to the MBD repeat sequences. Patterns of binding to tau fragments differed between IVIG products. Gammagard's highest binding was to tau 275-305 and tau 306-336 while Gamunex bound preferentially to tau 45-73 and tau 422-441. Flebogamma's binding to tau 275-305 and tau 306-336 was greater than to tau 337-368, and its binding to tau 306-336 was also higher than to tau 422-441. These findings indicate that IVIG products vary with respect to their binding to different regions of tau. This could result in differences with regard to their ability to prevent tau's aggregation and/or tau soluble oligomer neurotoxicity. PMID:24859060

Oligemic Hypoperfusion Differentially Affects Tau and Amyloid-?  

PubMed Central

Decreased blood flow to the brain in humans is associated with altered Alzheimer’s disease (AD)-related pathology, although the underlying mechanisms by which hypoperfusion influences AD neuropathology remains unknown. To try to address this question, we developed an oligemic model of cerebral hypoperfusion in the 3xTg-AD mouse model of AD. We bilaterally and transiently occluded the common carotid artery and then examined the molecular and cellular pathways by which hypoperfusion influenced tau and amyloid-? proteins. We report the novel finding that a single, mild, transient hypoperfusion insult acutely increases A? levels by enhancing ?-secretase protein expression. In contrast, transient hypoperfusion markedly decreases total tau levels, coincident with activation of macroautophagy and ubiquitin-proteosome pathways. Furthermore, we find that oligemia results in a significant increase specifically in tau phosphorylated at serine212 and threonine214, a tau epitope associated with paired helical filaments in AD patients. Despite the mild and transient nature of this hypoperfusion injury, the pattern of decreased total tau, altered phosphorylated tau, and increased amyloid-? persisted for several weeks postoligemia. Our study indicates that a single, mild, cerebral hypoperfusion event produces profound and long lasting effects on both tau and amyloid-?. This finding may have implications for the pathogenesis of AD, as it indicates for the first time that total tau and amyloid-? are differentially impacted by mild hypoperfusion.

Large tau and tau neutrino electric dipole moments in models with vectorlike multiplets  

SciTech Connect

It is shown that the electric dipole moment of the {tau} lepton several orders of magnitude larger than predicted by the standard model can be generated from mixings in models with vectorlike mutiplets. The electric dipole moment (EDM) of the {tau} lepton arises from loops involving the exchange of the W, the charginos, the neutralinos, the sleptons, the mirror leptons, and the mirror sleptons. The EDM of the Dirac {tau} neutrino is also computed from loops involving the exchange of the W, the charginos, the mirror leptons, and the mirror sleptons. A numerical analysis is presented, and it is shown that the EDMs of the {tau} lepton and the {tau} neutrino which lie just a couple of orders of magnitude below the sensitivity of the current experiment can be achieved. Thus the predictions of the model are testable in an improved experiment on the EDM of the {tau} and the {tau} neutrino.

Lepton flavor violating Higgs bosons and {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}  

SciTech Connect

We update phenomenological constraints on a two Higgs doublet model with lepton flavor nonconserving Yukawa couplings. We review that tan{beta} is ambiguous in such 'type III' models, and define it from the {tau} Yukawa coupling. The neutral scalars {phi} could be searched for at hadron colliders in {phi}{yields}{tau}{mu} and are constrained by the rare decay {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}. The Feynman diagrams for the collider process, with Higgs production via gluon fusion, are similar to the two-loop ''Barr-Zee'' diagrams, which contribute to {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}. Some ''tuning'' is required to obtain a collider cross section of order the standard model expectation for {sigma}(gg{yields}h{sub SM{yields}{tau}}{sup +{tau}-}), while agreeing with the current bound from {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}.

The cross section for the production of W bosons with subsequent decay W {yields} {tau}{nu}{tau} is measured with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The analysis is based on a data sample that was recorded in 2010 at a proton-proton center-of-mass energy of {radical}s = 7 TeV and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 34 pb{sup -1}. The cross section is measured in a region of high detector acceptance and then extrapolated to the full phase space. The product of the total W production cross section and the W {yields} {tau}{nu}{tau} branching ratio is measured to be {sigma}{sub W{yields}{tau}{nu}{tau}}{sup tot} = 11.1 {+-} 0.3(stat) {+-} 1.7(syst) {+-} 0.4(lumi) nb.

Atmospheric Eclipsing Binaries: Tau Per  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Follow up observations are proposed of the binary system tau Per, which we have reported to be another possible zeta Aur-like eclipsing system (Ake et al 1086). This is the third such system discovered with IUE. The primary is a G51II star with a 4.15 year spectroscopic orbit, while the secondary appears to be a normal A2 main sequence star. An astrometric orbit from speckleinterferometric observations has been determined by McAlister (1981). Eclipse observations so far cover only 2 partial phases and show a curious wavelength dependence unlike the other zeta Aur systems and much like the peculiar binary eps Aur, where the eclipse depth increases with decreasing wavelength to ~ 1600 and then becomes shallower down to ~ 1200. As in systems of this type, strong absorption lines in the far and mid-UV are seen superimposed on the secondary's spectrum during these phases. Further UV observations are needed at various times near eclipse to map out the extent and homogeneity of this material and investigate the wavelength dependent nature of the eclipse.

Novel Tau Polymorphisms, Tau Haplotypes, and Splicing in Familial and Sporadic Frontotemporal Dementia  

PubMed Central

Background A subset of familial cases (FTDP-17) of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) are caused by mutations in the tau gene. The role of tau gene mutations and haplotypes in sporadic FTD and the functional consequences of tau polymorphisms are unknown. Objectives To investigate (1) the frequency of known FTDP-17 mutations in familial and sporadic FTD and compare these results with previous studies; (2) whether the tau H1 haplotype is associated with FTD; and (3) the functional effect of intronic tau sequence variations. Patients and Methods Patients with familial and sporadic FTD were screened for mutations in the microtubule-binding region of tau. The frequencies of tau haplotypes and genotypes were compared between patients with FTD and control subjects. We analyzed the splicing effect of novel intronic polymorphisms associated with FTD. Results The P301L mutation was detected in 11% of familial FTD cases. The H1 haplotype was not overrepresented in patients with FTD, but the P301L mutation appeared on the background of the H2 tau haplotype. We identified 4 novel single nucleotide polymorphisms in intron 9 and a 9–base pair deletion in intron 4A. A C-to-T transition 177 base pairs upstream from exon 10 was significantly increased in patients with FTD compared with controls. Direct analysis of brain tissue from a patient with this variant showed an increase in exon 10–containing tau transcripts. Conclusions Sequence variations in intronic or regulatory regions of tau may have previously unrecognized consequences leading to tau dysfunction and neurodegeneration.

Biochemical Distribution of Tau Protein in Synaptosomal Fraction of Transgenic Mice Expressing Human P301L Tau.  

PubMed

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive dementia that is characterized by a loss of recent memory. Evidence has accumulated to support the hypothesis that synapses are critical storage sites for memory. However, it is still uncertain whether tau protein is involved in associative memory storage and whether tau is distributed in mature brain synapses. To address this question, we examined the synaptosomal distribution of tau protein in both JNPL3 transgenic mice expressing human P301L tau and non-transgenic littermates. The JNPL3 mouse line is known as one of the mouse models of human tauopathy that develop motor and behavioral deficits with intracellular tau aggregates in the spinal cord and brainstem. The phenotype of disease progression is highly dependent on strain background. In this study, we confirmed that male JNPL3 transgenic mice with C57BL/6J strain background showed neither any sign of motor deficits nor accumulation of hyperphosphorylated tau in the sarkosyl-insoluble fraction until 18?months of age. Subcellular fractionation analysis showed that both mouse tau and human P301L tau were present in the synaptosomal fraction. Those tau proteins were less-phosphorylated than tau in the cytosolic fraction. Human P301L tau was preferentially distributed in the synaptosomal fraction while mouse endogenous tau was more distributed in the cytosolic fraction. Interestingly, a human-specific tau band with phosphorylation at Ser199 and Ser396 was observed in the synaptosomal fraction of JNPL3 mice. This tau was not identical to either tau species in cytosolic fraction or a prominent hyperphosphorylated 64?kDa tau species that was altered to tau pathology. These results suggest that exogenous human P301L tau induces synaptosomal distribution of tau protein with a certain phosphorylation. Regulating the synaptosomal tau level might be a potential target for a therapeutic intervention directed at preventing neurodegeneration. PMID:24653715

A precise measurement of the tau lepton lifetime  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The tau lepton lifetime has been measured using three different methods with the DELPHI detector. Two measurements of one-prong decays are combined, accounting for correlations, giving a result of ?? = 291.8 ± 3.3 (stat.) ± 2.0(sys.) fs while the decay length distribution of three-prong decays gives the result ?? = 286.7 ± 4.9 (stat.) ±3.3 (sys.) fs. Combining the results presented here with previous DELPHI measurements, we get ?? = 291.4 ± 3.0 fs and find that the ratio of the coupling constant for tau decay relative to that for muon decay is 0.990 ± 0.009, compatible with lepton universality.

Rapamycin attenuates the progression of tau pathology in P301S tau transgenic mice.  

PubMed

Altered autophagy contributes to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and other tauopathies, for which curative treatment options are still lacking. We have recently shown that trehalose reduces tau pathology in a tauopathy mouse model by stimulation of autophagy. Here, we studied the effect of the autophagy inducing drug rapamycin on the progression of tau pathology in P301S mutant tau transgenic mice. Rapamycin treatment resulted in a significant reduction in cortical tau tangles, less tau hyperphosphorylation, and lowered levels of insoluble tau in the forebrain. The favourable effect of rapamycin on tau pathology was paralleled by a qualitative reduction in astrogliosis. These effects were visible with early preventive or late treatment. We further noted an accumulation of the autophagy associated proteins p62 and LC3 in aged tangle bearing P301S mice that was lowered upon rapamycin treatment. Thus, rapamycin treatment defers the progression of tau pathology in a tauopathy animal model and autophagy stimulation may constitute a therapeutic approach for patients suffering from tauopathies.

Differential Incorporation of Tau Isoforms in Alzheimer's Disease  

PubMed Central

There are 6 different isoforms of tau expressed in the adult human brain, and little information is available on the cellular distribution of the isoforms. Tau inclusions are found in neurons and occasionally glia in a variety of diseases. Previous studies conducted on brain homogenates suggested that tau isoforms might be differentially incorporated into inclusions. To further elucidate the complex issue of tau isoform composition in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other neurodegenerative diseases, monoclonal antibodies that differentiate between tau containing residues encoded by exon 10 (4R tau) and tau lacking exon 10 residues (3R tau) were used in single and double labeling immunohistochemistry as well as biochemical analyses of tau isolated from AD and other neurodegenerative diseases. Immunohistochemical analysis of the hippocampus in 34 AD cases performed with these antibodies showed both 3R and 4R tau isoforms in tangles. While biochemical studies showed that both isoforms were present in insoluble tau aggregates in AD hippocampus and cortex, not all tangles appear to be labeled with the 3R and 4R tau specific monoclonal antibodies. Similar studies in progressive supranuclear palsy and Pick’s disease confirmed that these diseases were characterized by incorporation of specific isoforms in fibrillar lesions, but lesions in neither disease were exclusively composed of 3R tau or 4R tau isoforms.

Calcium phosphatase calcineurin influences tau metabolism.  

PubMed

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by neuronal loss and the accumulation of ?-amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of ?-amyloid and tau/phospho-tau 181 (ptau 181) are also associated with AD. We have previously demonstrated that a single nucleotide polymorphism in calcineurin is associated with CSF ptau 181 levels and AD progression. In this study, we demonstrate that calcineurin protein levels are inversely correlated with dementia severity and Braak tangle stage in AD brains, and calcineurin activity is globally reduced in AD brains. We then sought to model the observed changes in CSF tau by measuring extracellular tau in cultured cells. SH-SY5Y cells treated with calcineurin inhibitors produced reduced calcineurin activity and a corresponding increase in extracellular ptau 181. These findings are consistent with our observations in AD patients, who have elevated CSF ptau 181 and reduced calcineurin activity in brain extracts. Thus, we have identified a gene that contributes to AD pathology and has functional consequences on tau metabolism in cultured cells. PMID:22676853

Modulation of tau protein fibrillization by oleocanthal.  

PubMed

Among the phenolic compounds extracted from extra virgin olive oil, oleocanthal (1) has attracted considerable attention in the modulation of many human diseases, such as inflammation and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Indeed, 1 is capable of altering the fibrillization of tau protein, which is one of the key factors at the basis of neurodegenerative diseases, and of covalently reacting with lysine ?-amino groups of the tau fragment K18 in an unspecific fashion. In the present study, an investigation of the recognition process and the reaction profile between 1 and the wild-type tau protein has been conducted by a circular dichroism, surface plasmon resonance, fluorescence, and mass spectrometry combined approach. As a result, 1 has been found to interact with tau-441, inducing stable conformational modifications of the protein secondary structure and also interfering with tau aggregation. These findings provide experimental support for the potential reduced risk of AD and related neurodegenerative diseases associated with olive oil consumption and may offer a new chemical scaffold for the development of AD-modulating agents.

Search for Pair Production of Scalar Top Quarks Decaying to a tau Lepton and a b Quark in ppbar Collisions at sqrt{s}=1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

We present the results of a search for pair production of scalar top quarks ({tilde t}{sub 1}) in an R-parity violating supersymmetric scenario using 322 pb{sup -1} of p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV collected by the upgraded Collider Detector at Fermilab. We assume each {tilde t}{sub 1} decays into a {tau} lepton and a b quark with a branching ratio {beta}, and that the final state contains either an electron or a muon from a leptonic {tau} decay, a hadronically decaying {tau} lepton, and two or more jets. Two candidate events pass our final selection criteria, consistent with the expectation from standard model processes. We present upper limits on the cross section times branching ratio squared {sigma}({tilde t}{sub 1}{bar {tilde t}}{sub 1}) x {beta}{sup 2} as a function of the stop mass m({tilde t}{sub 1}). Assuming {beta} = 1, we set a 95% confidence level limit m({tilde t}{sub 1}) > 153 GeV=c{sup 2} obtained using a next-to-leading order cross section. These limits are also fully applicable to the case of a pair produced third generation scalar leptoquark decaying into a {tau} lepton and a b quark.

We present a search for neutral supersymmetric Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs produced in pp collisions at square root of s = 1.96 TeV. The data, corresponding to 310 pb(-1) integrated luminosity, were collected with the Collider Detector at Fermilab in run II of the Tevatron.

Aminothienopyridazines and Methylene Blue Affect Tau Fibrillization via Cysteine Oxidation*  

PubMed Central

Alzheimer disease and several other neurodegenerative disorders are characterized by the accumulation of intraneuronal fibrils comprised of the protein Tau. Tau is normally a soluble protein that stabilizes microtubules, with splice isoforms that contain either three (3-R) or four (4-R) microtubule binding repeats. The formation of Tau fibrils is thought to result in neuronal damage, and inhibitors of Tau fibrillization may hold promise as therapeutic agents. The process of Tau fibrillization can be replicated in vitro, and a number of small molecules have been identified that inhibit Tau fibril formation. However, little is known about how these molecules affect Tau fibrillization. Here, we examined the mechanism by which the previously described aminothieno pyridazine (ATPZ) series of compounds inhibit Tau fibrillization. Active ATPZs were found to promote the oxidation of the two cysteine residues within 4-R Tau by a redox cycling mechanism, resulting in the formation of a disulfide-containing compact monomer that was refractory to fibrillization. Moreover, the ATPZs facilitated intermolecular disulfide formation between 3-R Tau monomers, leading to dimers that were capable of fibrillization. The ATPZs also caused cysteine oxidation in molecules unrelated to Tau. Interestingly, methylene blue, an inhibitor of Tau fibrillization under evaluation in Alzheimer disease clinical trials, caused a similar oxidation of cysteines in Tau and other molecules. These findings reveal that the ATPZs and methylene blue act by a mechanism that may affect their viability as potential therapeutic agents.

Inhibition of tau fibrillization by oleocanthal via reaction with the amino groups of tau.  

PubMed

Tau is a microtubule-associated protein that promotes microtubule assembly and stability. In Alzheimer's disease and related tauopathies, tau fibrillizes and aggregates into neurofibrillary tangles. Recently, oleocanthal isolated from extra virgin olive oil was found to display non-steroidal anti-inflammatory activity similar to ibuprofen. As our unpublished data indicates an inhibitory effect of oleocanthal on amyloid beta peptide fibrillization, we reasoned that it might inhibit tau fibrillization as well. Herein, we demonstrate that oleocanthal abrogates fibrillization of tau by locking tau into the naturally unfolded state. Using PHF6 consisting of the amino acid residues VQIVYK, a hexapeptide within the third repeat of tau that is essential for fibrillization, we show that oleocanthal forms an adduct with the lysine via initial Schiff base formation. Structure and function studies demonstrate that the two aldehyde groups of oleocanthal are required for the inhibitory activity. These two aldehyde groups show certain specificity when titrated with free lysine and oleocanthal does not significantly affect the normal function of tau. These findings provide a potential scheme for the development of novel therapies for neurodegenerative tauopathies. PMID:19549281

Tau phosphorylation and tau mislocalization mediate soluble A? oligomer-induced AMPA glutamate receptor signaling deficits.  

PubMed

In our previous studies, phosphorylation-dependent tau mislocalization to dendritic spines resulted in early cognitive and synaptic deficits. It is well known that amyloid beta (A?) oligomers cause synaptic dysfunction by inducing calcineurin-dependent AMPA receptor (AMPAR) internalization. However, it is unknown whether A?-induced synaptic deficits depend upon tau phosphorylation. It is also unknown whether changes in tau can cause calcineurin-dependent loss of AMPARs in synapses. Here, we show that tau mislocalizes to dendritic spines in cultured hippocampal neurons from APPSwe Alzheimer's disease (AD)-transgenic mice and in cultured rat hippocampal neurons treated with soluble A? oligomers. Interestingly, A? treatment also impairs synaptic function by decreasing the amplitude of miniature excitatory postsynaptic currents (mEPSCs). The above tau mislocalization and A?-induced synaptic impairment are both diminished by the expression of AP tau, indicating that these events require tau phosphorylation. The phosphatase activity of calcineurin is important for AMPAR internalization via dephosphorylation of GluA1 residue S845. The effects of A? oligomers on mEPSCs are blocked by the calcineurin inhibitor FK506. A?-induced loss of AMPARs is diminished in neurons from knock-in mice expressing S845A mutant GluA1 AMPA glutamate receptor subunits. This finding suggests that changes in phosphorylation state at S845 are involved in this pathogenic cascade. Furthermore, FK506 rescues deficits in surface AMPAR clustering on dendritic spines in neurons cultured from transgenic mice expressing P301L tau proteins. Together, our results support the role of tau and calcineurin as two intermediate signaling molecules between A? initiation and eventual synaptic dysfunction early in AD pathogenesis. PMID:24713000

Slow Scale Tau-leaping Method *  

PubMed Central

For chemical systems involving both fast and slow scales, stiffness presents challenges for efficient stochastic simulation. Two different avenues have been explored to solve this problem. One is the slow-scale stochastic simulation (ssSSA) based on the stochastic partial equilibrium assumption. The other is the tau-leaping method. In this paper we propose a new algorithm, the slow-scale tau-leaping method, which combines some of the best features of these two methods. Numerical experiments are presented which illustrate the effectiveness of this approach.

An ultralarge liquid argon time projection chamber based neutrino detector will have the uncommon ability to detect atmospheric {nu}{sub {tau}}/{nu}{tau} events. This paper discusses the most promising modes for identifying charged current {nu}{sub {tau}}/{nu}{tau}, and shows that, with simple kinematic cuts, {approx}30 {nu}{sub {tau}}+{nu}{tau} interactions can be isolated in a 100 kt{center_dot}yr exposure, with greater than 4{sigma} significance. This sample is sufficient to perform flux-averaged total cross-section and cross-section shape parametrization measurements--the first steps toward using {nu}{sub {tau}}/{nu}{tau} to search for physics beyond the standard model.

Distinct FTDP-17 Missense Mutations in Tau Produce Tau Aggregates and Other Pathological Phenotypes in Transfected CHO Cells  

PubMed Central

Multiple tau gene mutations are pathogenic for hereditary frontotemporal dementia and parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17 (FTDP-17), with filamentous tau aggregates as the major lesions in the CNS of these patients. Recent studies have shown that bacterially expressed recombinant tau proteins with FTDP-17 missense mutations cause functional impairments, i.e., a reduced ability of mutant tau to bind to or promote the assembly of microtubules. To investigate the biological consequences of FTDP-17 tau mutants and assess their ability to form filamentous aggregates, we engineered Chinese hamster ovary cell lines to stably express tau harboring one or several different FTDP-17 mutations and showed that different tau mutants produced distinct pathological phenotypes. For example, ?K, but not several other single tau mutants (e.g., V337 M, P301L, R406W), developed insoluble amorphous and fibrillar aggregates, whereas a triple tau mutant (VPR) containing V337M, P301L, and R406W substitutions also formed similar aggregates. Furthermore, the aggregates increased in size over time in culture. Significantly, the formation of aggregated ?K and VPR tau protein correlated with reduced affinity of these mutants to bind microtubules. Reduced phosphorylation and altered proteolysis was also observed in R406W and ?K tau mutants. Thus, distinct pathological phenotypes, including the formation of insoluble filamentous tau aggregates, result from the expression of different FTDP-17 tau mutants in transfected Chinese hamster ovary cells and implies that these missense mutations cause diverse neurodegenerative FTDP-17 syndromes by multiple mechanisms.

Elimination of spurious eigenvalues in the Chebyshev tau spectral method  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A very simple modification is presented for the Chebyshev tau method which can eliminate spurious eigenvalues, proceeding from a consideration of the vorticity-streamfunction reformulation of the Chebyshev tau method and the Chebyshev-Galerkin method, which have no spurious modes. Consideration of a model problem indicates that these two approaches are equivalent, and that they reduce to the present modification of the tau method. This modified tau method also eliminates spurious eigenvalues from the Orr-Sommerfeld equation.

Are tau aggregates toxic or protective in tauopathies?  

PubMed

Aggregation of highly phosphorylated tau into aggregated forms such as filaments and neurofibrillary tangles is one of the defining pathological hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease and other tauopathies. Hence therapeutic strategies have focused on inhibition of tau phosphorylation or disruption of aggregation. However, animal models imply that tau-mediated dysfunction and toxicity do not require aggregation but instead are caused by soluble hyper-phosphorylated tau. Over the years, our findings from a Drosophila model of tauopathy have reinforced this. We have shown that highly phosphorylated wild-type human tau causes behavioral deficits resulting from synaptic dysfunction, axonal transport disruption, and cytoskeletal destabilization in vivo. These deficits are evident in the absence of neuronal death or filament/tangle formation. Unsurprisingly, both pharmacological and genetic inhibition of GSK-3? rescue these tau phenotypes. However, GSK-3? inhibition also unexpectedly increases tau protein levels, and produces insoluble granular tau oligomers. As well as underlining the growing consensus that tau toxicity is mediated by a highly phosphorylated soluble tau species, our findings further show that not all insoluble tau aggregates are toxic. Some tau aggregates, in particular tau oligomers, are non-toxic, and may even be protective against tau toxicity in vivo. This has serious implications for emerging therapeutic strategies to dissolve tau aggregates, which might be ineffective or even counter-productive. In light of this, it is imperative to identify the key toxic tau species and to understand how it mediates dysfunction and degeneration so that the effective disease-modifying therapies can be developed.

Antisense reduction of tau in adult mice protects against seizures.  

PubMed

Tau, a microtubule-associated protein, is implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) in regard to both neurofibrillary tangle formation and neuronal network hyperexcitability. The genetic ablation of tau substantially reduces hyperexcitability in AD mouse lines, induced seizure models, and genetic in vivo models of epilepsy. These data demonstrate that tau is an important regulator of network excitability. However, developmental compensation in the genetic tau knock-out line may account for the protective effect against seizures. To test the efficacy of a tau reducing therapy for disorders with a detrimental hyperexcitability profile in adult animals, we identified antisense oligonucleotides that selectively decrease endogenous tau expression throughout the entire mouse CNS--brain and spinal cord tissue, interstitial fluid, and CSF--while having no effect on baseline motor or cognitive behavior. In two chemically induced seizure models, mice with reduced tau protein had less severe seizures than control mice. Total tau protein levels and seizure severity were highly correlated, such that those mice with the most severe seizures also had the highest levels of tau. Our results demonstrate that endogenous tau is integral for regulating neuronal hyperexcitability in adult animals and suggest that an antisense oligonucleotide reduction of tau could benefit those with epilepsy and perhaps other disorders associated with tau-mediated neuronal hyperexcitability.

Resolved Multifrequency Radio Observations of GG Tau  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present subarcsecond resolution observations of continuum emission associated with the GG Tau quadruple star system at wavelengths of 1.3, 2.8, 7.3, and 50 mm. These data confirm that the GG Tau A binary is encircled by a circumbinary ring at a radius of 235 AU with a FWHM width of ~60 AU. We find no clear evidence for a radial gradient in the spectral shape of the ring, suggesting that the particle size distribution is spatially homogeneous on angular scales gsim0.''1. A central point source, likely associated with the primary component (GG Tau Aa), exhibits a composite spectrum from dust and free-free emission. Faint emission at 7.3 mm is observed toward the low-mass star GG Tau Ba, although its origin remains uncertain. Using these measurements of the resolved, multifrequency emission structure of the GG Tau A system, models of the far-infrared to radio spectrum are developed to place constraints on the grain size distribution and dust mass in the circumbinary ring. The non-negligible curvature present in the ring spectrum implies a maximum particle size of 1-10 mm, although we are unable to place strong constraints on the distribution shape. The corresponding dust mass is 30-300 M ?, at a temperature of 20-30 K. We discuss how this significant concentration of relatively large particles in a narrow ring at a large radius might be produced in a local region of higher gas pressures (i.e., a particle "trap") located near the inner edge of the circumbinary disk.

Faint emission at 7.3 mm is observed toward the low-mass star GG Tau Ba, although its origin remains uncertain. Using these measurements of the resolved, multifrequency emission structure of the GG Tau A system, models of the far-infrared to radio spectrum are developed to place constraints on the grain size distribution and dust mass in the circumbinary ring. The non-negligible curvature present in the ring spectrum implies a maximum particle size of 1-10 mm, although we are unable to place strong constraints on the distribution shape. The corresponding dust mass is 30-300 earth masses, at a temperature of 20--30 K. We show how this significant concentration of relatively large particles in a narrow ring at a large radius might be produced in a local region of higher gas pressures (i.e., a particle "trap") located near the inner edge of the circumbinary disk.
