Lee Roberts Writes Viewpoint in Recent Physical Review Article
July 15, 2018
Physics Professor Lee Roberts was invited to write a Viewpoint for an article published in a recent issue in Physical Review D. The article focuses on an important recent step in the evaluation of the strong interaction contribution to the Standard Model value of the muon's anomalous magnetic moment. Lee writes in reaction that "This [article] represents the most precise evaluation of the hadronic contribution, and it reaffirms a long-standing discrepancy with experiments". This reaction stems from their measurements of the muon's magnetic anomaly at Brookhaven National Lab
Lee Roberts, along with Jim Miller and Rob Carey play important roles in the BNL measurement and are continuing to be important in the new Fermilab measurement.
