Abstract: The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon can be both measured and calculated to extraordinary precisions, and the long-standing discrepancy between the two numbers remains one of the most tantalizing hints of new physics beyond the standard model. The Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab is a new measurement of the anomaly, aims to improve the precision of the experimental value by 4 times. The first result of the Muon g-2 experiment using data collected in 2018 shows a 3.3 standard deviations from the standard model prediction and is in excellent agreement with the previous Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) E821 measurement. After combination with the E821 result, the new experimental average of the anomaly is at 4.2 standard deviations tension with theoretical value.
Speaker: Dr. Nam Tran, Boston University, US & IFIRSE affiliate, on behalf of the g-2 collaboration.
