The muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab looks to measure the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon to an unprecedented precision of 0.14 ppm to verify results from the E821 experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory. In addition to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon the project also seeks to search for a muon electric dipole moment with a better precision than has previously has been achieved. These measurement along with standard model predictions may result in a discrepancy between the standard model and experimental results which may give some insight to beyond standard model physics.
This thesis will present the results for systematics studies from the straw tube trackers in this experiment; mainly the resolution and cross talk in the detectors. It will also present how this will vary with a few of the final measurements for this experiment.
