Connected and leading disconnected hadronic lightbylight contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment with a physical pion mass
Abstract
We report a lattice QCD calculation of the hadronic lightbylight contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment at a physical pion mass. The calculation includes the connected diagrams and the leading, quarklinedisconnected diagrams. We incorporate algorithmic improvements developed in our previous work. The calculation was performed on the 48 ^{3} × 96 ensemble generated with a physical pion mass and a 5.5 fm spatial extent by the RBC and UKQCD Collaborations using the chiral, domain wall fermion formulation. We find a ^{HLbL} _{μ} = 5.35(1.35) × 10 ^{–10}, where the error is statistical only. The finitevolume and finite latticespacing errors could be quite large and are the subject of ongoing research. Finally, the omitted disconnected graphs, while expected to give a correction of order 10%, also need to be computed.

Calculation of the Hadronic Vacuum Polarization Disconnected Contribution to the Muon Anomalous Magnetic Moment
Here we report the first lattice QCD calculation of the hadronic vacuum polarization (HVP) disconnected contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment at physical pion mass. The calculation uses a refined noisereduction technique that enables the control of statistical uncertainties at the desired level with modest computational effort. Measurements were performed on the 48 ^{3}×96 physicalpionmass lattice generated by the RBC and UKQCD Collaborations. In conclusion, we find the leadingorder hadronic vacuum polarization amore »Cited by 18

Calculating the hadronic vacuum polarization and leading hadronic contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment with improved staggered quarks
We present a lattice calculation of the hadronic vacuum polarization and the lowest order hadronic contribution (HLO) to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, a{sub {mu}}=(g2)/2, using 2+1 flavors of improved staggered fermions. A precise fit to the lowq{sup 2} region of the vacuum polarization is necessary to accurately extract the muon g2. To obtain this fit, we use staggered chiral perturbation theory, including a model to incorporate the vector particles as resonances, and compare these to polynomial fits to the lattice data. We discuss the fit results and associated systematic uncertainties, paying particular attention to the relative contributions of themore »
