g-2 of the muon: status report

by Dr. Thomas Teubner (University of Liverpool)

Wednesday 20 March 2019 from 15:30 to 16:30 (Europe/London)
at Maths ( 211 )
The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, g-2, has been measured and calculated with
very high precision. It is one of few observables which persistently show a deviation between
experiment and Standard Model prediction. In this talk the current status of the theory
prediction will be reviewed, with emphasis on the hadronic contributions which are the main
source of the theoretical uncertainties. Future prospects and possible explanations of the g-2 puzzle will also be discussed.
