Puzzles in the hadronic contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment

We summarize recent developments in the Standard-Model evaluation of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon $a_\mu$, both in the hadronic-light-by-light and hadronic-vacuum-polarization contributions. The current situation for the latter is puzzling as we are confronted with multiple discrepancies that are not yet understood. We present updated fits of a dispersive representation of the pion vector form factor to the new CMD-3 data set and quantify the tensions with the other high-statistics $e^+e^-\to\pi^+\pi^-$ experiments in the contribution to $a_\mu$ in the energy range up to $1$ GeV, as well as in the corresponding contribution to the intermediate Euclidean window.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
