A theory of galvano- and thermomagnetic phenomena in thin films with nonidentical surfaces is presented. The kinetic equation is solved with consideration of boundary conditions in films with nonidentical surfaces in the presence of a magnetic field perpendicular to the film plane, and an electric field and temperature gradient within the film plane. General expressions are found for the components of the galvano- and thermomagnetic tensorsδ ik,β ik,κ ik which are oscillating functions of film thickness and magnetic field. A detailed analysis is performed of the dependence of magnetic resistanceρ(d, H), the Nernst — Ettingshausen(N-E) coefficient Q(d, H), the electron component of thermal conductivityκ(d, H), and the thermo-emfα(d, H) on film thickness and magnetic field.
