Article

Summary

From the analysis of the cosmic ray bursts produced by μ-mesons, the upper limit of the magnitude of the anomalous magnetic moment of μ-mesons is estimated. As a result, the anomalous magnetic moment of μ-mesons is found to be smaller than 80 percent of the normal Dirac moment.

Riassunto

Dall’analisi dei burst di raggi atoniici prodotti da mesoni μ si stima il limite superiore della grandezza del momento magnetico anomalo dei mesoni μ. Si trova che il momento magnetico anomalo dei mesoni μ è dell’80 % inferiore al momento normale di Dirac.
