The Muon g-2

  title={The Muon g-2},
  author={Fred Jegerlehner and Andreas Nyffeler},
The muon anomalous magnetic moment is one of the most precisely measured quantities in particle physics. In a recent experiment at Brookhaven it has been measured with a remarkable 14-fold improvement of the previous CERN experiment reaching a precision of 0.54ppm. Since the first results were published, a persisting “discrepancy” between theory and experiment of about 3 standard deviations is observed. It is the largest “established” deviation from the Standard Model seen in a “clean… CONTINUE READING
