    One of the biggest stories in physics this year involves the results of an experiment by a group of scientists at Fermilab that measured the g-factor of the muon. In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, the group found that measurements of the magnetic moment of the muon in Fermilab’s particle accelerator differed from what is predicted by the standard model of particle physics. Brown University Assistant Professor of Physics JiJi Fan discusses how to interpret those results...
