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)
We present the final results of the spin asymmetries A 1 and the spin structure functions g 1 of the proton and the deuteron in the kinematic range 0.0008ϽxϽ0.7 and 0.2ϽQ 2 Ͻ100 GeV 2. For the determination of A 1 , in addition to the usual method which employs inclusive scattering events and includes a large radiative background at low x, we use a new(More)
We present the results of the spin asymmetries A 1 of the proton and the deuteron in the kinematic region extending down to xϭ6ϫ10 Ϫ5 and Q 2 ϭ0.01 GeV 2. The data were taken with a dedicated low x trigger, which required hadron detection in addition to the scattered muon, so as to reduce the background at low x. The results complement our previous(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 energy resolution of the barrel part of the CMS Electromagnetic Calorimeter has been studied using electrons of 20 to 250 GeV in a test beam. The incident electron's energy was reconstructed by summing the energy measured in arrays of 3×3 or 5×5 channels. There was no significant amount of correlated noise observed within these arrays. For electrons(More)
We present a measurement of the longitudinal spin cross section asymmetry for deep-inelastic muon-nucleon interactions with two high transverse momentum hadrons in the final state. Two methods of event classification are used to increase the contribution of the photon-gluon fusion process to above 30%. The most effective one, based on a neural network(More)
The muon (g?2) experiment at Brookhaven has just completed a 3-month run for checkout and initial data-taking. In the rst two months beam was taken in a parasitic mode where one out of ten AGS pulses was delivered for commissioning of the beam line, quadrupoles, detectors, and data acquisition. This was followed by four weeks of dedicated data collection.(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)
