Constraints On Anomalous Charged Current Couplings, Tau Neutrino Mass And Fourth Generation Mixing From Tau Leptonic Branching Fractions, Maria Teresa Dova, John Swain, Lucas Taylor

John Swain

We use recent experimental measurements of tau branching fractions to determine the weak charged current magnetic and electric dipole moments of the tau and the Michel parameter η with unprecedented precision. These results are then used to constrain the tau compositeness scale and the allowed parameter space for Higgs doublet models. We also present new constraints on the mass of the tau neutrino and its mixing with a fourth generation neutrino.
