Muon Charge

  1. Nov 26, 2004 #1
    I'm trying to write a program that would process data from a particle physics experiment and I need to know what the charge of a muon/anti-muon is. It doesn't seem to be easy to find on the web. Does anyone here have a value for it?

    Same as the electron

    conversely, a charge of the anti-muon is +1. If I'm not wrong, every property of leptons (e,muon,tau), spin etc. are the same except for their masses.

    Thanks guys!
