### Abstract

The magnetoconductivity σ(B) in the two-dimensional (2D) nondegenerate electron fluid and 2D solid has been analyzed theoretically and investigated experimentally, from 60 mK to 1.3 K in magnetic fields B up to 8 Tesla. In the fluid phase, σ(B) is described by the Drude model in weak to moderately strong classical fields, including the range μB » 1. At higher fields (depending on the density) σ(B) is nonmonotonous and displays a minimum. This behavior is due to many-electron effects, which can be described in terms of cyclotron orbit diffusion controlled by an internal fluctuational electric field. The squared internal field derived from experiments is in good agreement with computer simulations. In the solid phase electron transport becomes strongly non-linear even for weak driving voltages V_{0}. Experimentally we determine, from the losses, the effective AC Corbino conductivity at a frequency f. We find that σ(B) ∝ fV_{0}/B for V_{0} below some threshold voltage V_{c}. In this region the Hall velocity v_{H} approaches the ripplon phase velocity v_{1} = w(G_{1})/G_{1} at the first reciprocal lattice vector G_{1} of the electron solid. We suggest that this behaviour is due to to a resonant drag force from the Bragg-Cerenkov radiation of coherent ripplons by the moving crystal.
