Electric Conduction and the Hall Effect
Kinetic theory of the conduction electron without and with a constant magnetic field is developed in this chapter. The Landau Levels (LLs) for an electron subject to a constant magnetic field B is derived. The LL is highly degenerate, and its degeneracy is eBA/(2πħ), where A is the sample area perpendicular to B. The Hall effect measurements give information about the charge sign and the density of the current carriers.
