@article{Behrends2018TransversalMI, title={Transversal magnetotransport in Weyl semimetals: Exact numerical approach}, author={Jan Behrends and Flore K. Kunst and Bjorn Sbierski}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2018}, volume={97}, pages={064203} }

Magnetotransport experiments on Weyl semimetals are essential for investigating the intriguing topological and low-energy properties of Weyl nodes. If the transport direction is perpendicular to the applied magnetic field, experiments have shown a large positive magnetoresistance. In this work we present a theoretical scattering matrix approach to transversal magnetotransport in a Weyl node. Our numerical method confirms and goes beyond the existing perturbative analytical approach by treating… Expand

It is found that the contributions of high-order Feynman diagrams to the transversal magneto-conductivity play the distinct roles between the cases of intra- and inter-valley scatterings, and that when altering the fermi energy among low-lying Landau level, the peaks ofTransversal conductivity just correspond to the valleys of the longitudinal conductivity.
