Description

We present a search for the fully leptonic B decay B+ -> tau+ nutau in 4.59x 10^8 B Bbar pairs collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance using the BaBar detector. We select a sample of events with a reconstructed hadronic B decay, B- -> D^{0} X^{-}$, where $X$ represents a combination of charged and neutral light mesons; in the remainder of each event we search for the B+ -> tau+ nutau signal.
