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.
