Abstract

The resonant structure of the four pion final state in the decay τ→3 ππ 0 ν τ has been analyzed using 4.27 million τ + τ - pairs collected by the CLEO II experiment at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring. A partial wave analysis of the resonant structure of the τ→3 ππ 0 ν τ decay has been performed; the spectral decomposition of the four pion system is dominated by the ωπ and a 1 π final states. The mass and width of the ρ′ resonance have been extracted from a fit to the τ→ωπν τ spectral function. We have searched for second class currents in the decay τ→ωπν τ using spin-parity analysis and established an upper limit on the non-vector current contribution.
