Muon g-2 on the lattice: The Challenge

  • Event time: 2:00pm
  • Event date: 13th November 2013
  • Speaker: Santi Peris (IFAE/UAB)
  • Location: Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics

Event details

After introducing the current status of the experimental result and Standard Model calculation of the muon g-2, I will  describe the challenge faced by a complete lattice calculation, focusing on the hadronic contributions to the so-called vacuum polarization.

Event resources

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
