An effective Hamiltonian approach is used to study the effect of Landau-level mixing on the energy spectrum of electrons in a smooth but random magnetic field (Formula presented) with a finite uniform component (Formula presented). It is found that, as opposed to electrostatic disorder, the energy levels of localized electrons shift upward with a rate of order (Formula presented) when (Formula presented) is decreased, while the extended states remain static at the same order. Therefore, there is no indication that the extended states will float out of the Fermi energy and induce a metal-insulator transition as the magnetic disorder is increased. We also find that the Zeeman term may have a significant effect on the spectral shift of low-lying Landau levels.
