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…

Muonium is one of the best probes for the test of the bound-state QED, owing to the absence of the effect from the internal structure of nucleons. The recent establishment of intense pulsed muon

Accelerator performance analysis of the Fermilab Muon Campus

Fermilab is dedicated to hosting world-class experiments in search of new physics that will operate in the coming years. The Muon g-2 Experiment is one such experiment that will determine with

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 incorporate

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 the

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.

Lattice QCD results for the HVP contribution to the anomalous magnetic moments of leptons

We present lattice QCD results by the Budapest-Marseille-Wuppertal (BMW) Collaboration for the leading-order contribution of the hadron vacuum polarization (LOHVP) to the anomalous magnetic moments

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 analysis

(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 in

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 from

The Hadronic Light-by-Light Scattering Contribution to the Muon and Electron Anomalous Magnetic Moments

We review the current status of theoretical calculations of the hadronic light-by-light scattering contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment. Different approaches and related issues such as
