Abstract

In e+e- annihilations at SPEAR we have searched for narrow neutral resonances in the eπ and μπ channels for masses between 0.5 GeV/c2 and 1.5 GeV/c2. No evidence for such states has been found. Under standard theoretical assumptions for production cross sections and decay branching ratios of heavy leptons a lower limit of 1.2 GeV/c2 can be set on the mass.
