The Muon g-2 Experiment Overview and Status as of June 2016

  title={The Muon g-2 Experiment Overview and Status as of June 2016},
  author={Jenny Holzbauer},
The Muon g-2 Experiment at Fermilab will measure the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon to a precision of 140 parts per billion, which is a factor of four improvement over the previous E821 measurement at Brookhaven. The experiment will also extend the search for the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the muon by approximately two orders of magnitude, with a sensitivity down to 10-21 Both of these measurements are made by combining a precise measurement of the 1.45T storage ring magnetic… Expand

Understanding the MiniBooNE and the muon and electron g − 2 anomalies with a light Z′ and a second Higgs doublet
Two of the most widely studied extensions of the Standard Model (SM) are a) the addition of a new U(1) symmetry to its existing gauge groups, and b) the expansion of its scalar sector to incorporateExpand
Two-Higgs doublet solution to the LSND, MiniBooNE and muon g−2 anomalies
We show that one of the simplest extensions of the Standard Model, the addition of a second Higgs doublet, when combined with a dark sector singlet scalar, allows us to: $i)$ explain theExpand
Hadronic Vacuum Polarization Contribution to the Anomalous Magnetic Moments of Leptons from First Principles.
The leading, strong-interaction contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron, muon, and tau is computed using lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD) simulations using six lattice spacings. Expand

The experimental status of direct searches for exotic physics beyond the standard model at the Large Hadron Collider
The standard model of particle physics is an extremely successful theory of fundamental interactions, but it has many known limitations. It is therefore widely believed to be an effective fieldExpand

Final report of the E821 muon anomalous magnetic moment measurement at BNL
We present the final report from a series of precision measurements of the muon anomalous magnetic moment, a(mu)=(g-2)/2. The details of the experimental method, apparatus, data taking, and analysisExpand
(g-2)_mu and alpha(M_Z^2) re-evaluated using new precise data
We update our standard model predictions for g − 2 of the muon and for the hadronic contributions to the running of the QED coupling, Δα(5)had(M2Z). Particular emphasis is put on recent changes inExpand
Muon ( g − 2 )
For a spin1 2 particle, ~ S = ~2~σ, and gs is called the Lande g-factor. From classical calculations that treat the charged particle as a rotating piece of current, gs = 1. Surprisingly, the DiracExpand
Reevaluation of the hadronic contributions to the muon g−2 and to $\alpha (M^{2}_{Z})$
We reevaluate the hadronic contributions to the muon magnetic anomaly, and to the running of the electromagnetic coupling constant at the Z-boson mass. We include new π+π− cross-section data fromExpand
