Abstract

We have calculated the contribution to the eighth-order anomalous magnetic moment of the electron arising from 25 Feynman diagrams generated by inserting second-, fourth-, and sixth-order vacuum polarization loops in the photon line of the second-order vertex diagram. Our result is 0.0766(6)(απ)4. The theoretical error represents the estimated accuracy (90% confidence limit) of the numerical integrations.
