We present the final report from a series of precision measurements of the muon anomalous magnetic moment, a µ = (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 a µ (Expt) =(More)
We have developed a dilution method for avian urine and modified existing analytical methods for ammonia, urea, uric acid and total nitrogen to permit determination of all these compounds on aliquots of the same urine sample. The proportions of urinary nitrogen in these compounds were: uric acid 55-72%, ammonia 11-21% and urea 2-11%. This ranking of(More)
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)
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)
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)
We present a detailed report of the method, setup, analysis, and results of a precision measurement of the positive muon lifetime. The experiment was conducted at the Paul Scherrer Institute using a time-structured, nearly 100% polarized surface muon beam and a segmented, fast-timing plastic scintillator array. The measurement employed two target(More)
