The magnetoresistance of Si: B delta layers of sheet concentrations 2 x 10(13) to 8 x 10(13) cm-2 has been measured at temperatures down to 0.3 K and in fields up to 12 T both parallel and perpendicular to the 2D hole gas. The results have been compared with the weak localization theory incorporating spin-orbit scattering, and with the Zeeman and orbital terms in the interaction theory. It is concluded that a promising alternative explanation of the results is to be found in the concept of wavefunction shrinkage, a metal-insulator transition to a strongly localized state being produced by the magnetic field. The logarithm of the sheet resistance is found to vary as B1/2 for fields above 5 T at a fixed temperature and as T-1/2 at 12 T, in agreement with recent theories of variable-range hopping.
