Longitudinal magnetoresistance (LMR) refers to the change in resistance due to a magnetic field when the current and the magnetic field are parallel to each other. For this to be nonzero in weak magnetic fields, kinetic theory stipulates that the electronic dispersion must satisfy certain conditions: it should either be sufficiently anisotropic or have topological features. The former results in a positive LMR while the latter results in a negative LMR. Here, I propose a different mechanism… Expand

The longitudinal magnetoresistance is easier to analyse than the transverse magnetoresistance, and it is used here to study how the theoretically predicted behaviour depends on the details of the… Expand

It is pointed out that the Boltzmann equation in the theory of metals reduces to a finite set of linear algebraic equations whenever the scattering probability can be written as a finite sum of the… Expand
