ONLINE COLLOQUIUM: "Theory of the Muon g-2" by Elisabetta Pallante (RU Groningen)


I review the status of the theoretical prediction for the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon within the Standard Model of Particle Physics. Guided by a historical perspective, the seminar will cover physics and anecdotes from the first calculations to current efforts. I will discuss the challenges, strategies, status, and open questions of the Standard Model  prediction. Is the discrepancy between the latter and current experimental results hinting at new physics?
