Muons continue to defy Standard Model
Date: Saturday, January 10, 2004 @ 12:28:30 GMT
An international team of physicists has reported what it describes as the most significant deviation to date between experiment and theory in particle physics. Measurements of how muons wobble in a magnetic field offer the clearest hint so far of new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. The findings were announced today by the muon g-2 collaboration at Brookhaven National Laboratory in the US.
