Title: Muon Anomalous Magnetic Moment and Low Energy e+e- Annihilation

Speaker: Simon Eidelman (Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics and Novosibirsk State University, Novosibirsk, Russia)

Abstract: The Muon Anomalous Magnetic Moment is one of the most precisely measured quantities in modern physics. Its measured value, known to 0.5 10^{-6} precision, is larger than the theoretical prediction in the Standard Model by almost 4 standard deviations. We discuss various aspects of the problem and explain how precise measurements of the low energy process e+e- into hadrons come into play.
