Do you remember the infamous “g-2” measurement ? The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon has been for over a decade in the agenda of HEP physicists, both as a puzzle and as a hope for good things to come.
Ever since the Brookhaven laboratories estimated the quantity at a value over 3 standard deviations away from the equally precise theoretical predictions, the topic (could the discrepancy be due to new physics??) has been commonplace in dinner table conversations among HEP physicists.
Similarly, no self-respected “global fit” of standard model observable quantities or scan of allowed parameter space of supersymmetric theories Continue reading “Muon G-2: The Anomaly That Could Change Physics”
