It has been suggested to me that the way to draw attention to my results is to explain the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. The magnetic moments of the electron and muon differ from the originally expected value by approximately 1/10 of one percent. Calculations using quantum electrodynamics correct this, and predict values that agree with experiment to at least 8 or 9 significant figures. But more accurate experiments reveal that in the case of the muon, the new predicted value is still off, by approximately one part in a billion (). This is what needs to be explained.

While I cannot at this stage produce a numerical prediction, I can show that there is at least one other contribution to the magnetic moment, in addition to the electro-dynamic contribution. Whether this contribution is big enough to account for the anomaly, I do not know. There are two ways to approach the issue, either via quantum gravity, or via electro-weak mixing.

I have shown that the electro-weak mixing angle of approximately 28.5 degrees is actually made up of two separate angles, of 23.44 and 5.14 degrees. The standard model cannot therefore describe the mixing in full detail, since the two angles do not necessarily contribute equally to the mixing. That is to say, the standard model does not completely separate electrodynamics from the weak force, although it gets very close. Hence calculations using standard model electrodynamics do not quite capture the true picture.

Looking at the issue from a gravitational point of view, I have shown that there is a mixing angle of 23.44 degrees between quantum electrodynamics and quantum gravity. Again, this mixing is not taken into account in the standard model. Hence there is a gravitational magnetic moment that has to be added to the electromagnetic moment in order to obtain the moment that is measured experimentally.

Whichever way we look at it, there is a contribution that comes from interactions with neutrinos, in addition to the interactions with photons that the standard model recognises. Once the contributions of the neutrinos are added into the calculations, I expect the corrected values to agree with experiment.
