    The Muon g-2 Experiment at Fermilab

    The muon anomalous magnetic moment (g-2) has played an important role in constraining physics beyond the Standard Model for many years. The Fermilab Muon g-2 Experiment has a goal to measure it to unprecedented precision: 0.14 ppm, which will have a fourfold improvement compared to the BNL g-2 Experiment (0.54 ppm) as well as provide one of the most sensitive tests of the completeness of the Standard Model by comparing with the theory. The Fermilab g-2 Experiment is close to the end of installation and ready for the commissioning and physical running soon. In this talk, I will give an overview of the experiment and discuss the work involved by the OleMiss group.
