Theory of the Muon Anomalous Magnetic Moment

: 978-3-540-32807-0


The theory of the muon anomalous magnetic moment is at the cutting edge of current research in particle physics. It includes multiloop calculations in both QED and electroweak theory, precision low-energy hadron physics, isospin violations and scattering of light by light. Any deviation between the theoretical prediction and the experimental value might be interpreted as a signal of an as-yet-unknown new physics. This book provides a comprehensive review of the theory of the muon anomalous magnetic moment.
