• Theorists publish highest-precision prediction of muon magnetic anomaly

    4 monthes ago - By Phys.org

    Theoretical physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and their collaborators have just released the most precise prediction of how subatomic particles called muons-heavy cousins of electrons-"wobble" off their path in a powerful magnetic field. The calculations take into account how muons interact with all other known particles through three of nature's four fundamental forces (the strong nuclear force, the weak nuclear force, and electromagnetism) while reducing the greatest source of uncertainty in the prediction. The results, published in Physical...
