Title

Anomalous Magnetic Moments of Free and Bound Leptons

Abstract

We review the theoretical knowledge of anomalous magnetic moments of free electrons and muons, and of electrons bound in hydrogenlike ions. We discuss applications of these observations in the determination of fundamental physical constants, the fine structure constant, the electron mass, and in searches for new interactions.
