We report on a study of the invariant mass spectrum of the hadronic system in the decay τ − → π − π 0 ν τ. This study was performed with data obtained with the CLEO II detector operating at the CESR e + e − collider. We present fits to phenomenological models in which resonance parameters associated with the ρ(770) and ρ(1450) mesons are determined. The π −(More)
We have observed four new decay modes of the charmed baryon + c using data collected with the CLEO II detector. Three decay modes, + c ! p K 0 , + , and + , are rst observations of nal states with an meson, while the fourth mode, + c ! K 0 K + , requires an s s quark pair to be popped out of the vacuum. The branching ratios relative to + c ! pK ? + are(More)
We have measured the branching ratio for the inclusive radiative penguin process b ! ss. We nd where the rst error is statistical, the second error is the additive systematic error from uncertainty in yield, and the third error is the multiplicative systematic error from uncertainty in eeciency, which includes model dependence .
We search for the decay B ? ! ? in a sample of over 2 million charged B decays using the CLEO detector. We use the channel in which the tau decays leptonically, and combine this lepton with the missing energy and momentum in the event to form a B candidate. A t to the mass and energy distribution of these B candidates yields ?14 46 signal events. This value(More)
We have used the CLEO-II detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring to study the inclusive production of charmonium mesons in a sample of 2.15 million BB events. We nd inclusive branching fractions of (1.130.040.06)% for B!J==X, (0.340.040.03)% for B! 0 X, and (0.400.060.04)% for B! c1 X. We also nd some evidence for the inclusive production of c2. An(More)
