Abstract

A new measurement of the mean lifetime of the τ lepton is presented. Three different analysis methods are applied to a sample of 90000 τ pairs, collected in 1993 and 1994 with the ALEPH detector at LEP. The average of this measurement and those previously published by ALEPH is ττ = 290.1 ± 1.5 ± 1.1 fs. © 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
