AbstractWe present a search for the decay B+ -> tau(+)nu using 383x10(6)B[overline B] over bar pairs collected at the Upsilon(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II B-Factory. A sample of events with one reconstructed semileptonic B decay (B --> D(0)l - [overline nu](l)X) is selected, and in the recoil a search for B+ -> tau(+)nu is performed. The tau is identified in the following channels: tau(+)-> e(+)nu[overline nu], tau(+) -> mu(+)nu[overline nu], tau(+) -> pi(+)[overline nu], and tau(+) -> pi(+)pi(0)[overline nu]. We measure a branching fraction of B(B+ -> tau(+)nu)=(0.9 ± 0.6(stat.)± 0.1(syst.))x10(-4). In the absence of a significant signal, we calculate an upper limit at the 90% confidence level of B(B+ -> tau(+)nu)< 1.7x10(-4). We calculate the product of the B meson decay constant f(B) and |Vub| to be f(B)·|Vub|=(7.2(-2.8)(+2.0)(stat.) ± 0.2(syst.))x10(-4) GeV.
