The transverse magnetoconductivity has been calculated for a one-dimensional semiconductor superlattice under the action of an external quantizing electric field. The dependence of the conductivity on the electric and magnetic fields is analyzed and found to exhibit a strongly pronounced resonance character. The maximum values of conductivity are evaluated.
