Title: Search for B 0 π τ + ν τ with hadronic tagging at Belle

Abstract

We search for the process B 0 → π τ +ν τ using the full Belle data set of 711 fb –1, corresponding to 772 × 10 6BB¯ pairs, collected at the Υ(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e +e collider. Here, we reconstruct one B meson in a hadronic decay and search for the B 0 → π τ +ν τ process in the remainder of the event. No significant signal is observed and an upper limit of B(B 0 → π τ +ν τ) < 2.5 × 10 –4 is obtained at the 90% confidence level.
