Description

Recent studies of the hadronic vacuum polarization and hadronic light-by-light scattering contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment (g-2) are reviewed. Attention is paid to systematic errors arising from finite volume and non-zero lattice spacing, among others. The problem of disconnected quark loop diagrams is also discussed.
