Title: Measurement of the branching ratio of B ¯ 0 D * + τ - ν ¯ τ relative to B ¯ 0 D * + - ν ¯ decays with a semileptonic tagging method

Abstract

We report a measurement of the ratio R(D*) = B($$\bar{B}$$ 0→ D *+τ -$$\bar{v}$$τ )/B($$\bar{B}$$ 0→D *+-$$\bar{v}$$ℓ), where ℓ denotes an electron or a muon. The results are based on a data sample containing 772 × 10 6 B$$\bar{B}$$ pairs recorded at the (4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB e +e - collider. We select a sample of B 0 $$\bar{B}$$ 0pairs by reconstructing both B mesons in semileptonic decays to D *∓±. We measure R(D*) = 0.302±0.030(stat) ±0.011(syst), which is within 1.6σ of the Standard Model theoretical expectation, where the standard deviation σ includes systematic uncertainties. We use this measurement to constrain several scenarios of new physics in a model-independent approach.
