Abstract
A search for high-mass resonances decaying into tau(+)tau(-) is performed using a data sample of pp collisions at root s = 7 TeV. The data were collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.9 fb(-1). The number of observed events is in agreement with the standard model prediction. An upper limit on the product of the resonance cross section and branching fraction into tau-lepton pairs is calculated as a function of the resonance mass. Using the sequential standard model resonance Z'(SSM) and the superstring-inspired E-6 model with resonance Z'(psi) as benchmarks, resonances with standard model couplings with masses below 1.4 and 1.1 TeV, respectively, are excluded at 95% confidence level.
