In the Ring Electron Model, it was impossible to explain the electron's anomalous magnetic moment. This leads us to assume that the electron has a substructure.
The half-integer spin implies an anomalous magnetic moment of 2.
where [m.sub.t] is the mass of the top quark, q is the momentum transfer to the photon, and the couplings [[??].sub.V] and [[??].sub.A] are real and related to the anomalous magnetic moment and the electric dipole moment of the top quark, respectively.
The anomalous magnetic moment reduction and failure of DFT to describe it well might be related to the role of Kondo screening which cannot be accounted for in DFT [13, 14] or the f-band hybridization, f-band Coulomb exchange, and crystal field interactions which can be better explained with Hamiltonian systems with ab initio determined parameters [9].
The Lande g-factor for a [[blank].sup.2][D.sub.5/2] state, including the correction for the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron, is 1.200 464.
In Section 4, we estimate a quantum bound in the LW heavy mass using the experimental value of the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron.
This value has to be compared with the semi experimental value 137.035 999 084(51) obtained by combining theory and experiment of the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron [8], as well as with the value 137.035 999 074(44), which is the latest CODATA value [9] from 2010.
minimally extended to include massive Dirac neutrinos and we attribute an anomalous magnetic moment (MM) and an electric dipole moment (EDM) to a massive tau-neutrino.
