### Search for charged Higgs boson decays of the top quark using hadronic decays of the tau lepton

Abstract:
This Letter describes a direct search for charged Higgs boson production in pp̄ collisions at √s = 1.8 TeV recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. Two-Higgs-double extensions to the standard model predict the existence of charged Higgs bosons (H±). In such models, the branching fraction for top quarks ℬ(t → H+ b → τ+ vb) can be large. This search uses the hadronic decays of the tau lepton in this channel to significantly extend previous limits on H± production.
