In the context of a two-flavour approximation we reinterpret the published NOMAD limit on ν(μ) → ν(τ) oscillations in terms of ν(e) → ν(τ) oscillations. At 90% C.L. we obtain sin 2θ(eτ) < 5.2 x 10 for large Δm , while for sin 2θ(eτ) = 1 the confidence region includes Δm < 11 eV /c . (C) 2000 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. 2 -2 2 2 2 2 4
