Measurement of the pseudoscalar decay constant fDs using Ds+→τ+ν, τ+→ρ+ν̄ decays

Abstract:

Analyzing 600pb-1 of e+e- collisions at 4170 MeV center-of-mass energy with the CLEO-c detector, we measure the branching fraction B(Ds+→τ+ν)= (5.52±0.57±0.21)% using the τ+→ρ+ν̄ decay mode. Combining with other CLEO measurements of B(Ds+→τ+ν) we determine the pseudoscalar decay constant fDs=(259.7±7.8±3.4)MeV consistent with the value obtained from our Ds+→μ+ν measurement of (257.6±10.3±4.3)MeV. Combining these measurements we find a value of fDs=(259.0±6.2±3.0)MeV, that differs from the mos...
