Abstract

Using 467 fb-1 of e+e- annihilation data collected with the BABAR detector, we measure B(τ-→μ-ν̅ μντ)/B(τ-→e-ν̅ eντ)=(0.9796±0.0016±0.0036), B(τ-→π-ντ)/B(τ-→e-ν̅ eντ)=(0.5945±0.0014±0.0061), and B(τ-→K-ντ)/B(τ-→e-ν̅ eντ)=(0.03882±0.00032±0.00057), where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. From these precision τ measurements, we test the standard model assumption of μ-e and τ-μ charge current lepton universality and provide determinations of |Vus| experimentally independent of the decay of a kaon.
