Abstract

An analysis of 9.66 × 10 charged B meson decays which results in a conservative upper limit on the branching fraction B(B → τν) < 8.4 × 10 . The analysis was slightly modified to establish B(B± → K± νν̄) < 2.4 × 10 . The method used is optimized for conditions available at Y(4S) experiments, and some application of the method to other rare decay modes with large missing energy was aniticipated. 6 -4 -4
