We suggest an analytical theory to describe angular magnetoresistance oscillations recently discovered in the quasi-one-dimensional conductor [Formula presented] [see Phys. Rev. B 57, 7423 (1998)] and define the positions of the oscillation minima. The origin of these oscillations is related to interference effects resulting from Bragg reflections which occur as electrons move along quasiperiodic and periodic (“commensurate”) electron trajectories in the extended Brillouin zone. We reproduce via calculations existing experimental data and predict some novel effects.
