Abstract

The recent measurement of the muon g-2 at Fermilab confirms the previous Brookhaven result. The leading hadronic vacuum polarization (HVP) contribution to the muon g-2 represents a crucial ingredient to establish if the Standard Model prediction differs from the experimental value. A recent lattice QCD result by the BMW collaboration shows a tension with the low-energy e(+)e(-) -> hadrons data which are currently used to determine the HVP contribution. We refer to this tension as the new muon g-2 puzzle. In this Letter we consider the possibility that new physics contributes to the e(+)e(-) -> hadrons cross-section. This scenario could, in principle, solve the new muon g-2 puzzle. However, we show that this solution is excluded by a number of experimental constraints. (C) 2022 The Author(s).
