1301.2607 (T. Blum et al.)

Hadronic corrections to the muon anomalous magnetic moment from lattice

T. Blum, M. Hayakawa, T. Izubuchi
After a brief self-contained introduction to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, (g-2), we review the status of lattice calculations of the hadronic vacuum polarization contribution and present first results from lattice QCD for the hadronic light-by-light scattering contribution. The signal for the latter is consistent with model calculations. While encouraging, the statistical error is large and systematic errors are mostly uncontrolled. The method is applied first to pure QED as a check.
