Unformatted text preview: B . The linearized Boltzmann equation in this case readse v k · E ∂f ( ε k ) ∂ε k =g ( k ) τ ( ε k ) + e ~ ( v k × B ) ∂g ( k ) ∂ k (2) where g ( k ) = f ( k )f ( k ). a) Why is in (2) the magnetic ﬁeld in ﬁrst order not a driving ﬁeld, contrary to the electric ﬁeld? b) Calculate for the case of B = (0 , ,B ) the resistivity tensor ˆ ρ = ˆ σ1 and show that (i) the Hall resistance becomes independent of the scattering time τ and that (ii) the transverse magnetoresistance deﬁned by Δ ρ xx ( B ) = ρ xx ( B )ρ xx (0) (3) is equal to zero. Hint: Consider independently the cases where the electric ﬁeld points in the x , y and z direction, respectively, and use the ansatz g ( k ) = ak x + bk y .
