Abstract

Form a sample of about 75000 τ decays measured in the ALEPH detector, 1-prong charged kaon decays are identified by the dE/dx measurement in the central detector. The resulting branching ratios for the inclusive and exclusive modes are: B(τ → ντK- ≥ 0π0 ≥ 0K0) = (1.60±0.07±0.12)%, B(τ → ντK- = (0.64±0.05±0.05)%, B(τ → ντ-π0 = (0.53±0.05±0.07)% and B(τ → ντK-π0π0) = (0.04±0.03±0.02)%. Exclusive modes are corrected for measured KL0 production. The rate for τ → ντK- agrees well with the prediction based on τ - μ universality. © 1994.
