Are misbehaving muons taking us beyond the Standard Model of particle physics? Raymond Volkas (Melbourne)

Abstract: After reviewing the basics of our current understanding of fundamental particles and their interactions, as enshrined in the Standard Model, Raymond Volkas briefly surveys the well-established evidence that this is an incomplete theory. The main part of the talk is then about recent measurements of the muon anomalous magnetic moment, and the rates of some B-meson decays, which point to possible further inadequacies of the Standard Model. Interestingly, the strongest current hints for this all involve muons.
