Abstract:  
We investigate the magnetotransport properties of a twodimensional electron gas with anisotropic
kcubic Rashba interaction at the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface. The Landau levels and density of states
of the system as well as the magnetotransport coefficients are evaluated. A somehow anomalous
beating pattern in low magnetic field regime is found both in the density profile and magnetoresistivity.
We discuss the impact of electron density, Landau level broadening and Rashba spinorbit
constant on the appearance of the beatings in low magnetic fields and find that at low electron
concentrations and not very strong spinorbit interactions the beatings smooth out. On the other
hand, as the magnetic field increases, the Zeeman term becomes the dominant splitting mechanism
leading to the spinsplit peaks in SdH oscillations. We also show that the observation of the beatings
in low magnetic fields needs a system with rather higher carrier concentration so that the beatings
persist up to sufficiently large fields where the oscillations are not smoothed out by Landau level
broadening. The quantum Hall plateaus are evaluated and we show the Chern number with both
even and odd values is replaced by the odd numbers when two subband energies are closed with spin
degenerate energy levels. Along with the numerical evaluation of the magnetotransport properties,
a perturbative calculation is also performed which can be used in the case of low densities and not
very large filling factors.
