Abstract
Magnetotransport in two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) under the influence of random magnetic field is studied. When the random component is turned o n while keeping the average zero, the resistivity of the,DEG shows an incre ase, which is proportional to the square of the random field amplitude. In the presence of a fixed random component, the system shows a large positive magnetoresistance as a function of the uniform magnetic field component. T his positive magnetoresistance resembles that of a 2DEG around half-filled Landau level state and saturates at around the field value where the cyclot ron radius crosses over the spatial correlation length of the random field.
