Title: Anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and penguin loops in the Randall-Sundrum model

Abstract: The Randall-Sundrum model with Standard Model fields in the
bulk of a warped five-dimensional space-time provides a
simultaneous solution to the gauge and flavour hierarchy
problems. While the tree-level phenomenology of this model has
been widely studied, relatively little has been known about
processes that are entirely loop-induced. In this seminar
I describe the calculation of such processes in a framework
that treats the model as a full-fledged 5D quantum field
theory avoiding the introduction of Kaluza-Klein
decompositions. The results focus on the muon anomalous
magnetic moment and the radiative lepton-flavour-violating
decay mu -> e gamma.
