B Resistivity tensor and Magnetoresistance

  1. Jun 17, 2016 #1
    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently trying to understand the resistivity and conductivity tensor of a 2D sample. If a current carrying metal bar is placed inside a magnetic field the Hall Effect comes in to play. I tried to search for explanations on how to obtain the resistivity tensor of the metal bar in this configuration but I can seem to understand how it is obtained.

    Secondly, I have read that there should be a classical $$ B^2 $$ dependence of the resistance of the sample but I also do not understand what is the origin.

    Thanks in advance!
