Goals of this presentation Place in a broader context the work presented over the last couple of days Summarize those results Stimulate a discussion on where we (the tau community) should be focusing resources over the next two-four years Precision measurements of tau properties Tau lifetime Tau mass Dipole moments DELPHI tau lifetime (final) (Attilio Andreazza) Three methods: MD (w=0.34), IPD(w=0.22), Decay length(w=0.45) = 290.9 ± 1.4 ± 1.0 fs

BABAR tau lifetime (preliminary) (Alberto Lusiani) Single method: 2D Decay length = 289.4 ± 0.91 ± 0.90 fs BABAR tau lifetime (Alberto Lusiani) With 80/fb, statistics traded as long as lower systematic errors = 289.4 ± 0.91 ± 0.90 fs e.g. Weight to equalize f acceptance in 60 Bins, take error as Variance on 100 sub-samples BLINDED Systematic errors from modelling tau decay DELPHI: MD (BR, polarisation) 0.30% Decay length (bias, MC stat) 0.27% IPD (method bias[colinearity, ]) 0.07% BABAR: decay kinematics bias (MC stat) 0.2% [effect ~1.3%] negligible non-MC stat. Estimate correlations between LEP measurements of <0.2% New World Average t lifetime CLEO,LEP, BABAR: Ignoring ~0.1% level correlations: = (290.15 ± 0.77) fs 2/ dof = 2.3/5 (prob=82%) (assuming 0.2% correlations between LEP Lifetimes, tt290.11±0.79 fs) Future prospects: BELLE should be able to make measurement with comparable precision as shown by BABAR BABAR statistical error can go down ~x2 with data in can now. BABAR systematic errors dominated by statistics of control samples, MC statistics, alignment errors, koralb description of ISR. Can expect improvements of x2overall. Overall, expect B-factories to bring error down another factor of 2 compared to BABAR results shown here: At TAU06 [or TAU08] could see WA with errors of 0.4fs (0.14%) or less! CPT Lifetime: 1st CPT on lifetime from BABAR (Lusiani) Mass: OPAL only experiment to publish CPT on mass New mass measurement (~10-4) at threshold is expected at VEPP-4 (Shamov) but CPT test is not a threshold measurement B-factories should publish these asymmetries in the future!
