The resistivity rxx (B, Т) for a low mobility dilute 2D elecron gas in GaAs/n-InGaAs/GaAs double quantum wells exhibits a monotonic «insulating-like» temperature dependence at T = 1.8–70 K (drxx(T)/dT < 0) in zero magnetic field and dsxy (B, T)/dT < 0 in the vicinity of wс t ≈ 1. This temperature interval corresponds to diffusive and ballistic regimes (kBTt / ħ = 0.1-3.8) for our samples. The electron density is on a «metallic» side (n > nc of the so-called B = 0 2D metal—insulator transition. Due to this anomalous sxy (B, T) T-dependence we observed some peculiarities of the insulator—quantum Hall state (with n=10) transition in low magnetic fields.
