A precise measurement of the anomalous g value, a(mu) = (g-2)/2, for the positive muon has been made at the Brookhaven Alternating Gradient Synchrotron. The result a(mu+) = 11 659 202(14) (6) x 10(-10) (1.3 ppm) is in good agreement with previous measurements and has an error one third that of the combined previous data. The current theoretical value from(More)
We present the final report from a series of precision measurements of the muon anomalous magnetic moment, aμ = (g − 2)/2. The details of the experimental method, apparatus, data taking, and analysis are summarized. Data obtained at Brookhaven National Laboratory, using nearly equal samples of positive and negative muons, were used to deduce aμ(Expt) = 11(More)
Data from the muon g-2 experiment at Brookhaven National Lab has been analyzed to search for a muon electric dipole moment(EDM), which would violate parity and time reversal symmetries. An EDM would cause a tilt in the spin precession plane of the muons, resulting in a vertical oscillation in the position of electrons hitting the detectors. No signal has(More)
Serum concentrations of amoxycillin were significantly higher with probenecid than without probenecid for up to 18 h after administration of a single 3 g oral dose of amoxycillin. At 12 to 16 h after this dose the mean serum amoxycillin concentrations exceeded the expected minimum bactericidal concentrations of amoxycillin for viridans streptococci when(More)
The mean life of the positive muon has been measured to a precision of 11 ppm using a low-energy, pulsed muon beam stopped in a ferromagnetic target, which was surrounded by a scintillator detector array. The result, tau(micro)=2.197 013(24) micros, is in excellent agreement with the previous world average. The new world average tau(micro)=2.197 019(21)(More)
b The muon (g−2) experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory has measured the anomalous magnetic moment of the positive muon with a precision of 0.7 ppm. This paper presents that result, concentrating on some of the important experimental issues that arise in extracting the anomalous precession frequency from the data. The spin of the muon generates a(More)

The muon g-2 experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory measures the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, aμ, very precisely. This measurement tests the Standard Model. The analysis for the data collected in 2000 (a μ run) is completed and the accuracy on aμ is improved to 0.7 ppm, including statistical and systematic errors. The data analysis was(More)
