Research highlight: Leading hadronic contribution to the muon magnetic moment from lattice QCD

Representation of the calculation of the hadronic vacuum polarization effect on muon magnetism. The muon (µ) spins like a top, turning into a tiny magnet surrounded by a magnetic field. It follows a trajectory along which it interacts with the magnet from the “muon g-2” experiment, as well as with virtual particles from the quantum vacuum. Thus, it polarizes the hadronic vacuum, leading in turn to a modification of its own magnetic moment. The background of 0s and 1s, along with the square tiling, call to mind a supercomputer calculation, which is one of the approaches described here. © Dani Zemba, Pennsylvania State University (Penn State).
