Abstract

The branching fraction of the tau(-)-> 3h(-)2h(+)nu(tau) decay (h=pi,K) is measured with the BABAR detector to be (8.56 +/- 0.05 +/- 0.42)x10(-4), where the first error is statistical and the second systematic. The observed structure of this decay is significantly different from the phase space prediction, with the rho resonance playing a strong role. The decay tau(-)-> f(1)(1285)pi(-)nu(tau), with the f(1)(1285) meson decaying to four charged pions, is observed and the branching fraction is measured to be (3.9 +/- 0.7 +/- 0.5)x10(-4).
