The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon (g-2)μ is one of the most precise measurements in modern physics. The difference between the theoretical prediction and the experimental measurement at ~3.7sigma might indicate the presence of new particles and interactions. In this talk we will discuss the physics of (g-2)μ, the standard model prediction, theoretical and experimental challenges, as well as implications for new physics in a model exhaustive approach. We conclude with the implications for a future muon collider program in case (g-2)μ confirms the existence of muonic forces beyond the standard model.
