The hadronic vacuum polarization (hvp) function $\Pi$ is the basis quantity for high-precision lattice calculations of the hvp contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, $a_\mu^{\mathrm{lo-hvp}}$.
Recently, tensions have emerged between lattice QCD based determinations of intermediate time-distance hvp ("window") contributions to $a_\mu^{\mathrm{lo-hvp}}$ and their counterparts based on $e^+e^- \to \mathrm{hadrons}$ $R$-ratio experimental data.
The investigation of the 4-momentum-dependent polarization function itself provides an alternative approach to zero in on potential momentum regions where such discrepancies originate. We present results for our determination of $\Pi(Q^2)$ from twisted mass lattice QCD at physical quark masses, towards a $Q^2$-specific comparison with dispersive results.
