Abstract

A search for heavy neutrinos was conducted in the neutrino beam produced by the 400 GeV proton beam-dump and in the 400 GeV wide-band neutrino beam at CERN. A heavy neutrino associated with the τ lepton was searched for in the beam-dump experiment. No assumption on the nature of heavy neutrinos was made in the wide-band beam experiment. A search was made for neutrinos decaying into two electrons and a light neutrino. Since no events were observed, an upper limit on the neutrino mixing angles as a function of the neutrino mass is derived.
