The Accelerator and Beam Physics of the Muon g-2 Experiment at Fermilab
AbstractThe physics case of the Muon g-2 Experiment at Fermilab
is outstanding and has recently attracted significant
attention from its first official results. Although its measurements
involve high energy physics methods, such as counting
positron production rates with the use of calorimeters and
beam diagnostics with tracking detectors, this experiment
is strongly bound to accelerator and beam physics. This paper
reviews the principles of the experiment and the details
necessary to provide a solid ground for the beam-dynamics
uncertainties and the corrections of the systematic effects
influencing the output of the experiment: a single numerical
value, which may unveil new physics.
