First result of the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab

The Brookhaven muon g-2 experiment E821 measured the muon magnetic anomaly to a precision of 540 ppb (parts per billion). The difference between the Standard Model theory value and the E821 experimental value ultimately became 3.7 standard deviations. Is it a sign of new physics or a fluctuation? To answer this, a new experiment has been developed at Fermilab which uses the Brookhaven storage ring with the new muon beam and detectors. The Fermilab experiment has announced its much anticipated first results based on Run-1 data collected in 2018. In my talk, I will give a brief overview of the g-2 experiment and talk about the Run-1 measurements with highlights in beam and spin dynamics effects.
