Abstract

A measurement of the spectral functions of non-strange tau vector current final states is presented, using 124 358 tau pairs recorded by the ALEPH detector at LEP during the years 1991 to 1994. The spectral functions of the dominant two-and four-pion tau decay channels are compared to published results of ece-annihilation experiments via isospin rotation. A combined fit of the pion form factor from tau decays and e(+)e(-)data is performed using different parameaizations. The mass and the width of the rho(+/-)(770) and the p(0)(770) are separately determined in order to extract possible isospin violating effects. The mass and width differences are measured to be M<rho+/-(770) - M-rho 0(770), = (0.0 +/- 1.0) MeV/c(2) and Gamma(rho+/-(770)) - Gamma(rho 0(770)) = (0.1 +/- 1.9) MeV/c(2).
