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)
The muon (g − 2) value has played an important role in constraining physics beyond the standard model. We propose to develop an improved Muon (g −2) experiment at J-PARC with the design goal of an improvement of a factor of 5 to 10 over E821 at Brookhaven, (relative uncertainty 0.1 to 0.06 parts per million). At this proposed level of precision a robust(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)
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)
A higher precision measurement of the anomalous g value, a(mu)=(g-2)/2, for the positive muon has been made at the Brookhaven Alternating Gradient Synchrotron, based on data collected in the year 2000. The result a(mu(+))=11 659 204(7)(5)x10(-10) (0.7 ppm) is in good agreement with previous measurements and has an error about one-half that of the combined(More)
The spin precession frequency of muons stored in the (g-2) storage ring has been analyzed for evidence of Lorentz and CPT violation. Two Lorentz and CPT violation signatures were searched for a nonzero delta omega a(=omega a mu+ - omega a mu-) and a sidereal variation of omega a mu+/-). No significant effect is found, and the following limits on the(More)
The muon (g − 2) experiment at Brookhaven has been taking data since 1997. Analyses of the data taken in 1997 and 1998, which include about 2% of the data taken so far, have improved the experimental accuracy in the muon anomalous magnetic moment to a µ(expt) = 1165921(5) × 10 −9 (4 ppm). The value agrees with standard theory. Analysis of the 1999 data,(More)
