Abstract
Using the CLEO II detector operating at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring ( CESR) e(+) e(-) collider, we have measured the structure functions in the d ecay tau(-/+) --> pi(-/+) pi(0)pi(0)nu(tau), based on a sample correspondin g to 4 X 10(6) produced tau-pair events. We determine the integrated struct ure functions, which depend only on the three pion invariant mass, as well as the structure functions differential in the Dalitz plot variables. We ex tract model independent limits on non-axial-vector contributions from the m easured structure functions as less than 16.6% of thr total branching fract ion, at the 95% confidence level. Separating the non-axial-vector contribut ions into scalar and vector contributions, we measure that scalers (vectors ) contribute;with less than 9.4% (7.3%) to the total branching fraction, at the 95% confidence level.
