Orientation Dependence of the Anomalous Hall Effect in 3d-Ferromagnets
by Roman, Eric Shawn, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley, 2010, 87; 3556038
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation describes calculations of the magnetization dependence of the intrinsic Hall conductivity in three elemental ferromagnets: iron, cobalt and nickel. We compare our calculations with experimental measurements of these anomalous Hall coefficients, and we show that ab initio calculations of the anomalous Hall conductivity from the Karplus-Luttinger theory explain the observed changes in the anomalous Hall coefficients of these metals as the magnetization direction is varied.
