We present a theory of Hall effect in granular systems at large tunneling conductance $g_{T}\gg 1$. Hall transport is essentially determined by the intragrain electron dynamics, which, as we find using the Kubo formula and diagrammatic technique, can be described by nonzero diffusion modes inside the grains. We show that in the absence of Coulomb interaction the Hall resistivity $\rho_{xy}$ depends neither on the tunneling conductance nor on the intragrain disorder and is given by the classical… CONTINUE READING
