Many people have studied the conductance properties through an array of anti-dots, especially since the observation of Weiss oscillations. In most cases, however, in which the recursive Greens functions are used on a spatial lattice, periodic boundary conditions are employed. In this paper, we analyze the effects of boundary conditions and magnetic field on the conductance behavior in a number of anti-dot-shaped, GaAs/AlGaAs 2DEG quantum systems. The effect of periodic boundary conditions causes a reduction in the overall conductance. The effect of changing the boundary conditions is more profound for lower numbers of anti-dots.
