This macro gives the status of a<sub>&mu;</sub> just after the [FERMILAB seminar on
April 7, 2021](https://theory.fnal.gov/events/event/first-results-from-the-muon-g-2-experiment-at-fermilab/).

The theoretical values use the different

contributions as given in the
10
[White Paper](https://arxiv.org/pdf/2006.04822.pdf) of the
11
[Theory Initiative](https://muon-gm2-theory.illinois.edu/). Since the leading

order hadronic contribution is dominating the uncertainty of the
theoretical values, several values for a$_\mu$ are plotted which use the
different evaluations for the leading order hadronic contribution given in
Table 4 of the White Paper as well as the White Paper average.

To run the macro in ROOT:

> `.L g_mu_summary2021.C`

from the `File` menu.
