The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and the QED coupling at the Z boson mass

Ruofan Liao
In this thesis, we present our updated determinations for the leading order and higher order hadronic vacuum polarisation contributions to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon (a_{\mu}^{had,LOVP}, a_{\mu}^{had,HOVP}), and for the hadronic contributions to the running of the QED coupling at the Z-boson mass (\Delta\alpha_{had}^{(5)}(M_Z^2)). At present the Standard Model (SM) predictions of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon a_{\mu}^{SM} is lower than the experimental measurement a_{\mu}^{exp}$ by about 3 standard deviations.
