Abstract
A search for unstable neutral and charged heavy leptons as well as for stab le charged heavy leptons is performed at center-of-mass energies root s = 1 83 and 189 GeV with the L3 detector at LEP. No evidence for their existence is found. We exclude neutral heavy leptons which couple to the electron, m uon or tau family, of the Dirac type for masses below 92.4, 93.3 and 83.3 G eV, and of the Majorana type for masses below 81.8, 84.1 and 73.5 GeV, resp ectively. We exclude unstable charged heavy leptons for masses below 93.9 G eV for a wide range of the associated neutral heavy lepton mass. If the uns table charged heavy lepton decays to a light neutrino, we exclude masses be low 92.4 GeV. The production of stable charged heavy leptons with moss less than 93.5 GeV is also excluded.
