Thomas Teubner: g-2 of the muon and electron: anomalous anomalies

Friday, 22 November 2019 from to (Europe/London)
at Schuster ( 54-6-6.40 - Niels Bohr Common Room )
Description
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. The developments on the experimental side and the recently emerged discrepancy for the electron will also be briefly discussed.
