Abstract

Using the angular correlation between the [Formula presented] emitted in a [Formula presented] decay and the [Formula presented] emitted in the subsequent [Formula presented] decay, we have measured the branching fraction for the inclusive semielectronic decay of the [Formula presented] meson to be [Formula presented]. The measurement uses 1.7 [Formula presented] of [Formula presented] collisions recorded by the CLEO II detector located at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR). Combining this result with previous CLEO results we find [Formula presented] and [Formula presented]. The difference between this inclusive rate and the sum of the measured exclusive branching fractions (measured at CLEO and other experiments) is also presented.
