${{\mathit \tau}}$ WEAK DIPOLE MOMENT ($\mathit d{}^{\mathit w}_{{{\mathit \tau}}}$)

A nonzero value is forbidden by $\mathit CP$ invariance.
The $\mathit q{}^{2}$ dependence is expected to be small providing no thresholds are nearby.

1  HEISTER 2003F limit is on the absolute value of the imaginary part of the weak dipole moment.
2  Limit is on the absolute value of the imaginary part of the weak dipole moment, and applies for $\mathit q{}^{2}$ = ${{\mathit m}^{2}}_{{{\mathit Z}}}$.
