We measured the anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) and the planar Hall effect (PHE) in a  oriented epitaxial thin film of La0.7Ca0.3MnO3 (LCMO) as a function of magnetic field, temperature, and current direction relative to the crystal axes. We find that both AMR and PHE in LCMO depend strongly on the current orientation relative to the crystal axes, and we demonstrate the applicability of AMR and PHE equations based on a fourth order magnetoresistance tensor consistent with the film symmetry.
